About Distinctive Landscaping

Francis 'Butch' Storrs is a 1968 graduate of the Ratcliffe Hicks School of Agriculture and a Vietnam Veteran. In 1972 he founded Distinctive Landscaping. His many years of experience in the nursery and landscaping fields has given him an extensive knowledge of his trade, and his distinctive designs and eye for detail have earned him the respect of his peers. Butch is also a Certified Nurseryman with the Connecticut Nurseryman's Association.

 

Carolyn Storrs is a Certified Nurserywoman and an Accredited Landscape Technician I & II with the Connecticut Nurseryman's Association. She also has served on various boards of the Connecticut Nurseryman's Association. She has taught classes on landscaping and has published articles in "The American Nurseryman" magazine. In 2006 Carolyn was honored to receive the AWARD OF MERIT, the highest award given by her peers thru the Connecticut Nursery and Landscape Association.

 

Carolyn is active in the bidding and contracting end of the business and is registered as a Woman Owned Business Enterprise and Small Business Set-Aside, and Connecticut D.O.T. approved contractor.
