Design & Sales Team

Design & Sales Manager

Although her interest in horticulture started with a Landscape Architecture class in high school, it is in her blood.  Her Grandma ran a greenhouse in Fairbury, IL for 13 years and her oldest brother, Justin Kaisner, is the Grade Foreman here at Grieder's.  Kassandra started in 2004 as an intern, where she worked in every area of the company, with a focus on the installation crews.  Working on the installation crews has given Kassandra the knowledge of every aspect of the installation process and the hard work that goes into it. This extensive experience helps her in her designs today, and gave her the love she has for creating enjoyment for the customer.  She has a degree in Horticulture from Illinois Central College.

Will has been with Grieder’s since 2017, starting on the installation crews and working his way to becoming a Landscape Designer.  Though he might be a little green to the industry, Will more than makes up for it with his ambition to create the perfect landscape for his clients.  He is a young, driven, working class man who is constantly learning and developing his trade.  Will is the oldest son in a family of 8 siblings which gives him a fantastic perspective on how families use their outdoor spaces.  He loves his wife, Sarah, his country, and the therapy of nature.  Whether it’s with some vivacious planting to help your yard stand out from the rest, or it’s a complete outdoor living space for you and your family, he’s here to help!
