Meet the Team

Brian and Patti Grunkemeier, Owners

Brian has been in the landscape industry since 1975. He is a member of Washington Association of Landscape Professionals (WALP),  and a Master Gardener. In the early 1980’s he won the 1st place pruning award at Magnolia Garden Center in Seattle, WA. He has been featured in the Everett Herald. His expertise is design, installation, renovation, and pruning. With quality customer care as a priority, he is known for quickly turning customers into friends.

Patti is responsible for the administrative and marketing areas of the business. Fondly referred to by Brian as “The Brains”, Patti takes care of everything behind the scenes.  She also is a Certified Public Bookkeeper and works part-time for Lodestar Company, Inc., a heating and air conditioning company located in Lynnwood, WA.

They have two adult children and three adorable grandchildren who they spend as much time with as possible. They love to travel (not getting enough of it) and ballroom dance.

Cesar Robles and Rodolfo Reyes



Cesar and Rodolfo are two of the most hardworking and respectful employees you could ask for. Without them Sunset Landscape would not be the successful company that it is today. They strive to complete jobs efficiently and in a timely manner, ensuring that before they leave our customers are happy.

Natalieann Isom


Natalie is our part-time administrative assistant.  Her job is to make sure administrative tasks are completed quickly and accurately. She is currently enrolled at Bellevue Community college to obtain a Bookkeeping Certificate, and in the afternoon is a nanny to three boys – that happen to be Patti and Brian’s grandchildren!  In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her boyfriend, and hanging out with friends.

Our Many Partners

It is the expertise of many working together to bring excellence to the marketplace.  Over the years we have formed a network of quality contractors and other professionals to bring the best to you, the customer.

At Sunset Landscape and Design, Inc. we recognize the value of a good team.  It is the team, and everyone working together, that makes our company so successful.  We appreciate our employees and our industry partners.  Without them,  we’d be unable to call ourselves one of the best landscaping companies in the greater Seattle area.
