Owner Cooper Scollan brings over 35 years of experience to the industry. Cooper is a landscape developer, green roofing expert and bird enthusiast. He founded Native Coast Landscapes in 2013. Cooper's love of plants and nature began while helping his mother in the garden from an early age. Cooper studied horticulture, botany, plant propagation and landscape design at Monterey Peninsula College, College of Marin and Cabrillo College, specializing in integrated pest management, bio-dynamic farming, and organic farming. He obtained his BA in Social Cultures and Psychology from Dominican University. 

Cooper has worked extensively for California nurseries growing native and imported plants for green roof and landscape installations. He has designed, installed and maintained over 100 green roofs and walls throughout California, and was the head grower and co-designer of the California Academy of Sciences’ green roof. He was also the head designer of the notorious Observation Deck native garden atop the Academy.

Cooper has received many public awards and mentions. He was part of the team that won the Green Roofs for Healthy Cities (GRHC) Green Roof Excellence Award in 2010, and the Cities Alive Extensive Institutional Award of Excellence from the Academy of Sciences in 2008. Cooper is active throughout the community as a guest lecturer at many institutions including the California Academy of Sciences, Monterey Peninsula College, and Carmel Middle School. He is also an active member and volunteer for the California Native Plant Society, American Nursery and Landscape Association (ANLA), and the American Landscape Contractors of America (ALCA).
