David Dempsey attended the School of Business at the University of South Carolina in Spartanburg, SC, and received a degree in Landscape Design from the Art Institute of Atlanta. He inherited his love of gardening from his grandparents. As a child he had a small greenhouse to grow seedlings, nurture “suffering” houseplants and grow flowers for the spring. David never realized that his love for gardening and plants would evolve into a career path.
Prior to the creation of Viridis, David undertook an intensive study of landscapes and gardens throughout the U.S. and England. Starting from ground level, he went from pulling weeds at a small garden business to a top management and design position at a well-noted design firm in Atlanta. David’s talents are also sought after in the areas of floral and event design.
Viridis offers a comprehensive approach to landscape design, installation and horticulture services. David strives to assist Viridis’ clients with the integration of their interior spaces with the exterior “rooms” which he and his team will “furnish.” David sees Viridis growing to become a household name that will always provide quality services and maintain sharpened design skills for the client base.
David is aware that many Atlantans have a sense of pride of their surroundings. Their desire to improve property for enjoyment and beauty is significant. Having a fine garden or “refined” garden is much like being a collector of fine artwork. Fortunately, many Atlantans appreciate and patronize artists and creators.
