Leadership


Jonas G. Pattie, CLP – President & Co-Owner
Jonas has witnessed The Pattie Group grow and change throughout his entire life. The company’s mission, values, and ideals were created in front of his ever watchful child eyes, and have been deeply rooted into who he has become. A Pattie childhood was loaded with days on the job site, evenings sitting on mom’s lap while she designed, trips to nurseries and client meetings with Dad, and watching the total creation of a landscape project from start to finish over and over again. The beautification of the environment, proper design techniques and the ability to create dynamic outdoor spaces is a skill Jonas has been studying his entire life. He is well known for his passion, innovation, creativity, and detail that permeate his designs and projects, and as a result no other Project Director has presided over as many state and national award winning projects as he has over the last fifteen years.

Jonas has his degree in Landscape Design from Columbus State, and in 2009 became one of the youngest in the nation to attain his national “Certified Landscape Professional” certification. He oversees The Pattie Group’s marketing efforts, supervises the Project Development team and is one the senior driving forces within the company. Like his father, Jonas has been featured or sought for commentary in countless national and local publications and has appeared 5 times on WJW Fox 8 Cleveland's "Kickin It With Kenny" segments.
