About Us

My Experience

My name is Derek Martindale and I’m a professional landscaper. I have a degree in Landscape and Business Management from BYU and have spent the last 20 years working at the largest landscaping firms creating and maintaining some of the most marquee properties in the country. From five-star resorts like the Montage, Ritz Carlton and St. Regis in Laguna Beach California to the pristine campuses of Amazon, Facebook, Adobe, eBay and Oracle to mega developments like Daybreak, Saratoga Springs and Station Park in Utah. I’ve had the opportunity to manage truly spectacular properties and build relationships with amazing people. I have surrounded myself with some of the best talent in the industry to bring you a depth of knowledge, experience and resources that your home or business deserves. With over 80 team members currently and growing, here are a few of the team members you would be working with directly when you hire Thrive.

Our Team

I started Thrive to bring professional grade landscaping to your home. I’m focusing all my experience to help your property reach its full potential. I’m proactive, collaborative and never satisfied until a job is done right. I believe your home deserves the best and, together, we can make your property thrive.
