Meet Our Team

A shared love of gardening and artfully crafting beautiful landscapes is what led Michele Oskanian and her husband Fred to start Terra back in 2003. With an MBA from St. Josephs (Go Hawks!), she’s the in-house accountant, number-cruncher, and Jill of All Trades. When she’s not running the business, she enjoys tennis, skiing, and attending her 3 sons’ extracurricular activities.

Fred is the General Manager of Terra and is the proud father of three amazing boys. He’s also big into tennis, skiing, and generally just enjoying the great outdoors. Fred got into landscaping because he loves the creativity afforded to him in helping homeowners beautify their homes.
