A Family & A Family Business
Kurt and Sharon met at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Following graduation, they both obtained jobs working in the landscape industry.
In 1985, Kurt and Sharon married and soon decided it was time to start their own business, which is now known as Bret-Mar Landscape. At first, Kurt and Sharon operated out of their home in Mt. Greenwood. After a few projects were completed, word began to spread about the excellent work and talent of these two young landscape architects.
Design and installation took precedence over maintenance, and the company continued to grow. In 1996, Kurt and Sharon purchased a farm house with five acres. This is where Bret-Mar still operates today. The farm house has been restored into an office and the five acres have become a great space for display gardens and a nursery.
