Hill Country Gardener and hillcountrygardener.com is a sole proprietorship that is owned and operated by Matthew McCabe. In 2004 I retired from a 20+ year Engineering position in Executive Management and international technical sales career in the Telecommunications Industry. Following semi-retirement, I elected to follow my passion for beautiful yards, flower beds and flowers. I have been growing plants in the central Texas area for over 20 years; and have developed a keen passion and knowledge for flowers and plants that can help to enhance our gardens and yards. Also, I have learned much in the recent years about deer-resistant plants and products. I believe I will continue to expand my knowledge of planting, growing and developing a successful organic environment in our yards and around our homes that will help to establish a healthy and cost effective eco-system with a balance of beneficial insects, animals, and soils. I also have several years of studying painting, drawing and art that I believe affords us a unique appreciation of textures and colors in our gardens that can be enhanced with both plants and hard-scape features.
Michael Cicone has been working with us at Hill Country Gardener helping to grow the business and develop our office and our business processes. Michael is also the driving force that has helped us develop our Client Appreciation annual Halloween party.
Brandon McCord has been working with Hill Country Gardener for several years and has developed into a seasoned gardener perfecting and expaning his year round gardening knowledge. Brandon assists with our gardening maintenance, plantings, provides training to newer helpers and meeting with our clients for ongoing service review/requests. Brandon and I continuously share knowledge and ideas about what we have found that works and is happening in each of our clients yards.
