Darin Brockelbank is the founder, President and Chief Visionary officer of MetroGreenscape, Inc., located in Charlotte, NC.
At the age of 14, he started his first business, Darin’s Lawn Care. There was little competition in the Charlotte suburbs, providing a hardworking kid with many opportunities. His family had just moved to the area from Massachusetts, and Darin, the oldest of five children and the son of a working-class family, understood if he wanted any extras, he would have to work for them.
When he was 17, Darin met his future wife, Heather, at church. After graduation, she went away to school at Winthrop University, and he attended Central Piedmont College on a business scholarship.
Darin established MetroGreenscape, Inc. in 2004 and has developed the company to be a turnkey outdoor living, landscape design and build company. MetroGreenscape, Inc. services the greater Charlotte area including several nearby counties in both North and South Carolina.
