After receiving a BS in Botany from Baldwin Wallace College in 1980, Bill Teamerson spent the fall of 1982 studying the gardens of Kyoto, Japan and throughout China. He graduated from the College of Environmental Science and Forestry with a degree in Landscape Architecture in 1983. He has been the senior residential landscape designer at Wayside Garden Center for the past 21 years. During that time he has created innovative and award winning designs. He has also received regional, state and national accolades on his projects.
Bill has been involved with Gardenscape since its inception. He has chaired the Children’s Garden, Exhibitor Rules, and Forced Plant Committees.
He is a Lifetime Senior Certified Nursery Landscape Professional and in 2004 was selected from a pool of over 750 CNLPs to receive the first New York State Certified Nursery Landscape Professional of the year award.
He is a past president of the Gardenscape Nursery Professionals Association and has served on the boards of the Rochester Landscape Technicians, New York State Nursery and Landscape Association, Town of Webster Openspace Committee and the Webster Chamber of Commerce. He served as the regional chairperson for the CNLP program for 10 years and as the New York State chairperson for an additional 5 years.
While not working for the betterment of the landscape industry, Bill is a senior patroller for the National Ski Patrol at Bristol Mountain. He is registered nationally as an instructor in outdoor emergency care and CPR. Recently he was awarded a yellow merit star for his contributions to the regional patrol and was selected to become an instructor trainer.
When he is not involved with Ski Patrol or the Landscape industry, or driving his son Jake back and forth to Penn State, Bill can be found at home working on his 1820 farmhouse and gardens with his wife Anne.
It looks like it's been there a hundred years!
