Welcome! I’m Michael Wayt and I founded Landscape Works, Inc. along with my wife, Melinda Flurry Wayt, in 1999. We’re a Memphis-based landscape design, build, installation, and garden care company. Our work experience varies extensively in both scope and climate – from residential garden retreats in California, Connecticut and France, to large-scale projects in Saudi Arabia.
I earned my Bachelor of Science degree from California Polytechnic University in San Luis Obispo, California where I majored in Ornamental Horticulture and minored in Landscape Construction. When Melinda and I owned and operated Ecoworks Landscape and Nursery, an award-winning company based in Southern California, I studied Landscape Architecture at the University of California at Los Angeles.
When we relocated to Memphis over twenty years ago, we sought to use our landscape know-how to better our new community. I helped to establish the Historic Broad Avenue Business Association, significantly contributing to the district’s eminent revival. As one of Evergreen Historic District’s active residents, I helped to ensure the neighborhood’s charm for future generations by supervising the planting of over 200 trees and over 10,000 daffodils. I have worked with the Memphis City Beautiful Commission, and lectured at well-renowned local institutions — the Memphis Botanic Garden, the Memphis Horticultural Society, Memphis Heritage, and others.
Our team would love to work with you. Combining your ideas with our design experience and horticultural knowledge, we can work together to create your ideal landscape. We are a licensed, bonded, and insured company, and we serve all of Memphis and the Mid-South. For an estimate or proposal, contact us at 901-327-5270.
