I’m here to share my favorite lawn and landscape tips, and general love of plants and dirt! Join me in the backyard and discover how you can plant your way to a successful landscape.
Welcome to Plant for Success! With so much generic and contradicting information out there I decided to create a place for tried and true landscaping, and lawn care information. I hope this site improves your landscape and fuels your passion for everything green.
More About Me …
My name is Mark Melchione and I graduated from the University of New Hampshire in 2007 with a degree in Economics. At that point in my life I thought I would enter into white collar world, climb the corporate ladder and be on my way to a happy life.
After 2 torturous months inside, underneath fluorescent lights, I literally ran out of the office and never went back. Not knowing what to do next, I naturally gravitated to landscaping work to pay the bills. I liked it so much I started a small landscaping company which I ran for the next 6 years. During this time is when I discovered my love for plants and landscapes which has only grown today.
I eventually sold the landscaping company to take on a job as a construction foreman which is what I do today. I love being a part of large construction projects.
When I’m not on the construction site I’m most likely in my backyard working in my plant nursery. I have converted my backyard into a profitable plant nursery, where I grow thousands of plants every year!
My wife Stephanie helps run the register during my plant sales, and my 3-year-old daughter Taylor loves saying hi to the customers. My dog Toby is a Morkie, and his main mission in life is to get belly rubs.
I got the inspiration to start Plant for Success from my wife. She is a successful food blogger and has taught me a lot about blogging. She has encouraged me to share my knowledge and love for plants and landscapes with the world.
