Scott Chatham, Founder & President
Today the company Scott Chatham founded in 1995 is the most honored landscape company in Georgia, having led all others in Georgia Urban Landscape Professionalism awards every year since 2013.
But some 30 years ago, Scott’s wage for a week's work was about $135. He was a landscape laborer and proud to be part of the prestigious Post Properties Landscaping crew.
His work at Post earned him the Doug Bates Memorial Scholarship for outstanding vocational and academic performance and later a B.A., Landscape Architecture from the College of Environment & Design at the University of Georgia. He also studied landscape architecture abroad at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in Melbourne, Australia.
Following his studies, Scott worked in different capacities in Atlanta's most respected landscape firms, even acting as lead designer for some of Atlanta's signature projects, including North Point Mall, Wildwood Office Park and Bank of America Plaza. But his proudest achievements are on display at the more than 300 homes and communities whose landscapes are entrusted to him and his team of landscape professionals.
Scott lives in Johns Creek with his wife, Darlene, and their children, Laurel Lee and Joe.

After a 1989 stint as a summer associate with a local company, he joined Post Landscaping, the nation's top in-house landscape organization, where experience in several roles led to his promotion to oversee Personnel Management and Plant Purchasing for trade areas that included California, Texas, New York, Virginia and Georgia.
In 2003, David accepted the position of Vice President of Residential Services at Chatham. He is actively involved in the Georgia Urban Ag Council and National Association of Landscape Professionals.
