About Us

Terra Sol Garden Center has been in business since 2001. Mike Tully and Margaret Peavey are co-owners and have many years of nursery, landscaping and design knowledge between the two of them, gained from education and work experience prior to owning Terra Sol. Not only do they love the business and coming to work every day, but this attitude and ethic is reflected in the rest of the staff as well. Mike is also a co-manager here and is in charge of ordering the bulk or our landscape plants, shrubs, and trees. If you need a special pot, fountain, or decor item, Margaret is the one to talk to, since that is her area of expertise.

Lucky for us, Tony Krock is our nursery's main succulent buyer, as well as a co-manager with Mike Tully. He is the main reason why we have the best selection of succulents in the Santa Barbara area. His passion for this group of plants is shared by all of the staff here at Terra Sol, but his obsession with agaves not only exceeds our tastes but goes beyond most plant nerds to the extreme.

We are also gifted with Fernando Villasana, who is the backbone of our staff. He is our fountain expert/specialist, and has enabled our business to expand greatly in this area. He spends most of his time here setting up all our different varieties and styles of fountains so our customers can actually see and hear how they look and sound while the fountains are running.

The rest of our incredible staff at Terra Sol includes Margarita Huerta, our  mini garden designer extraordinaire, who is in charge of house plants; Cathy Montandon, who merchandises our incredible selection of garden gifts and decor; Sophia Franco takes on the huge task of our colorful and expansive collection of bedding and vegetable plants; and Clare Kinnahan, who is slowly but surely getting us cleaned up and organized. She  is also responsible for the serenity and layout of our shade and bonsai plant area.

And last but not least is our newest members Garrett and Brandon, who are helping out with special orders and loading up customer cars.
