Josh Samples’ passion for his family’s landscaping business showed as early as age 3, when he began tending his own tomato plants. Working together with his father, David Samples, at Minks Outdoor Professionals, Samples is in demand as a designer of landscapes, hardscapes, and aquascapes thanks to his talent for blending natural materials in innovative ways. Samples works with concrete, gravel, water, and plants to create colorful, living works of art. He is also involved with the landscaping at the family’s Oak Hill Gardens Outdoor Event Space in London.
