Sam Whitney, Owner and President

After obtaining a B.S. degree in Ornamental Horticulture from Michigan State University in 1977, Sam Whitney worked in several nurseries and obtained an Advanced California Certified Nurseryman’s status before beginning a gardening venture in 1984. As gardening turned into landscaping, Sam obtained his Landscape Contractors license in 1992; he soon became owner and President of Samscaping, Incorporated and joined the CLCA in 1993 with just one employee. Since then the company has continued to grow with 25 employees including an exceptional Administrative staff, Installation team and Design team. Sam has also had the pleasure of serving as one of the CLCA’s San Francisco Bay Area chapter Presidents. Sam has also graciously earned numerous Landscape Design and Construction awards at the local and state level.
