Steve Surrey – General Manager
Steve has been a landscape installation foreman for over 20 years. He has installed and maintained every aspect of a landscape. He is qualified to install everything from brick pavers to boulder walls, ponds to decks and plant material of every shape and size.
Steve is also an experienced pruner of trees and shrubs and has the ability to run virtually any loader, tractor or back hoe that your job may require.
Mary Bartolatto started Bella Fiori in 2000 part time while working as a gardener for a local landscape company. After realizing the need for gardeners in our community she went to full time operation in 2001 working out of her own garage in Grand Rapids. Every year since then we have grown and expanded.
Mary has always had a passion for all plants. House plants were particularly interesting while she was growing up, and she always loved helping in the rose garden. Her love of gardening grew over the years with continuous education through courses at Michigan State University (including the Master Gardeners Course), Frederick Meijer Gardens, Michigan Nursery and Landscape Association and many years of hands on experience in the garden.
Based on our customer’s budget we design, install and maintain their gardens. Perennial (landscape) gardens are our specialty and what we are best known for, but by no means are they the limit of our abilities. Our entire staff of talented gardeners takes delight in their work, and there is no project too big or small. Our dedicated team is experienced, knowledgeable, reliable and hard working, but most of all we love what we do and take pride in the results.
