Ross "Joe" Bowen- Owner
"Joe" Bowen, landscape designer and contractor, started Ross NW Watergardens in 1999. Before that he worked as the
head of landscape construction for Kurisu International for 3 years. He began his
landscaping career in 1975 in Phoenix, AZ working for the family
commercial and residential landscape business, Bowen's Inc.
Joe is a husband of over 35 years, has 5 children, and still has an unstoppable step-back jump shot.
Ben Bowen- Landscape Manager
Ben is usually your first contact with Ross NW Watergardens and will help you decide how we can work together on your landscaping. He also oversees lawn care and landscape maintenance. Ben is a third generation landscaper and has been working in the family business since 2003.
As a kid Ben spent his summers installing irrigation timers in the Phoenix heat. He spent 5 years in Brooklyn and Rye, NY working in food service and as a stone mason. He returned to Portland in 2003 and now has a wife of over 10 years and 3 sons. He still hasn't beat Joe at basketball.
We currently have 7 full-time employees. They have worked with us anywhere from 5-14 years. We pride ourselves on having amazing craftsmen (and women) and treating them well!
