Johnny Snow Shovel
Greetings, Johnny Snow Shovel here. I am the residential maintenance manager at Peabody Landscape Group. I also get involved in some enhancement design work, namely, entry ways, planting bed upgrades and annual flower installations. During winter I deal with snow removal, specializing in walkway de-icing efforts; hence my winter code name mentioned above.
When I am not involved in landscape work, I like to take time off to travel to out-of-the-way places and take a few risks, experiencing new things not normally done. I like traveling to different Latin American countries exploring historical and archeological sites in Mexico and Central America. A few years back I made a bike tour of southern Mexico with a friend of mind; we traveled about 960 miles in three and a half weeks. Anyhow, exotic foods and beverages are also high on my wish list to experience when traveling abroad.
Since we are still in the throes of ‘old man winter’, we should remember that the landscape around our homes does not have to look so bleak with just clumps of leafless sticks poking out of the ground. There could be more interesting things going on; much more about this later.

My name is Pat Lynch and I am a residential landscape design consultant for Peabody Landscape. My passion is to create spaces for people that are unique and functional. I enjoy working with all elements of landscape design from man-made products to natural/timeless products. My designs are practical and my philosophy is simple, “form follows function” and “simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”. I am a graduate of The Ohio State University and have been part of the Peabody Design team for over 10 years. Starting from the field and working my way up, I have been in the Landscape profession for over 30 years. My background is in design, construction and horticulture. If I design it, I can and or have built it at some time in my career. Let me show you how I can help you transform your property.
My projects have won over 30 state and local awards with several Grand awards from the Ohio Nursery and Landscape Association. On a professional level I keep very active on several advisory boards and committees involving Ohio Nursery and Landscape Association, Certified Landscape Technician Testing program through PLANET, State of Ohio CDE testing and curriculum for Ohio high school landscape programs, National FFA testing for landscape programs, advise Columbus State Community College landscape program and am the founder of and committee planner for KICKBUTT COLUMBUS. In my community of Canal Winchester I serve as Chairman of our Landmarks Committee and head the marketing for our local Blues and Rib festival.
My true passion is my family. Our only son Ben has given my wife Cindi and I 3 beautiful grandchildren who are the light of our life. When not busy with them (we see them all the time as they live a couple blocks away), Cindi and I enjoy traveling both around the US and in Europe, riding motorcycles, spending time with friends and hanging out and relaxing in the Hocking Hills. Also, I enjoy working out, teaching Yoga at our local gym, golf and playing on a sand volleyball team. For my blog, you can expect topics ranging from all different areas, things that I’m involved in outside of Peabody to projects that I am currently working on!
I am Mary Pat Muszynski, and I am the controller for Peabody Landscape. While I love the debits and credits that I deal with at work, at home I prefer reading histories and mysteries; cooking for my family; and playing with my 5 (soon to be 7) grandchildren!
My family and friends have often accused me of having a black thumb. Now that I am surrounded by co-workers who are horticulture experts, I have resolved to learn to grow herbs. I love using fresh herbs when I hit the kitchen. Why pay those grocery store prices when I can grow them myself?
Stay tuned, and I will be transformed (hopefully) from Killing Thyme to Growing Thyme.
