Thoughts from Current Team Members


“Before starting at GLD, I ran a very successful design company. GLD was not only a great work referral source for my business but a partnership I could foresee blossoming into something great. When I made the decision to close my company, I wanted something new and fresh. After discussion with my family and several offers on the table; there was no question – GLD was the answer. I chose GLD for one reason and one reason only… Robert Groff. His desire to be better and provide the best customer service resonated with me. I have never been a part of a company culture quite like this. Throughout my 19 year career, GLD has empowered both me and others, professionally and personally to excel in every avenue we pursue. I can say with complete certainty that it was the best professional decision of my life. As much as I enjoyed running a successful business; GLD has allowed me to do what I do best and that is design. GLD has truly created a work place where individuals use their strengths and grow their weaknesses as we collaboratively make Team GLD the most respected landscape design / build company in Northern Virginia.”

“Working at Groff you feel like your opinion matters and you matter. It’s not just about getting the daily tasks done. It’s about achieving goals and bettering the process and the experience along the way. Groff is big on client satisfaction, but we are equally committed to our employees. We want Groff to be a career and not just a job. At Groff it’s great to be known for quality workmanship and client service. It should also be recognized as a company that values the people, the employees, who contributes to that.”

Director of First Impressions & Human Relations

“I came to U.S in 2004, Groff is my third place of work, for things of destiny I joined in 2015 to Groff Landscape Design, my adaptation to the new group was easy because they are all very kind and make work a pleasant day.

The company has the right tools for each situation and each job. If for some reason we don’t have something, the company purchases it as soon as possible to make work easy and safe for us. Our check is always available 1 to 2 days before the payment date. Another point to highlight is that the company believes in the opportunities and make them a reality!!! Every January we’re learning in seminars that makes me feel a fundamental part of the company. I want to continue working for this great company, take all the opportunities that give me to keep climbing steps until I reach the top.”

“When I meet with Robert Groff, the owner of the company in June of 2009 he was very easy to talk to and very friendly. I had a good job at the time, but I decided to join GLD because I found there to be something more interesting and exciting. GLD was using new technology for the projects as it relates to tracking labor hours, design, organization and communication. I also had an opportunity for better benefits and advancement. After 5 years of working outside as a craftsman, GLD offered me a new position as an Operations Manager. It wasn’t easy for me because I enjoyed working outside on the project installations, and I didn’t know anything about the new office position. Rob was very friendly and helped me to get comfortable. Now I have been working for over a year as Operations Manager. I have great support to be the best I can be. There is a lot more to say but all I can say for now is, I am very happy to work with Groff Landscape Design and I will provide a good service to our customers. I hope I will meet with you soon and I will do my best to provide you a good service on your new project. Thank you very much to Groff Landscape Design because it has provided me the opportunity to know wonderful customers! Thank you very much for taking your valuable time to read this!”
