Shane, owner of Iowa Outdoor Products, has been in the landscaping field for over 25 years. He graduated from Iowa State University in 1990 with a BA in Landscape Architecture, and began working at Iowa Outdoor Products in 1991; he took ownership of the company in 1998. Shane strives to develop long term relationships with customers by listening to their wants and needs, and helping them create the landscape of their dreams. Shane likes to design with natural stone and products that come from the earth. He specializes in formal design - using boxwoods, roses, and sculptural elements that give a rich, formal look year-round. He also enjoys installing memorial gardens and parks - whether for a city project, or in someone's backyard; helping to create a memorial to honor someone is a very gratifying process.
