Hopkinton, MA – Weston Nurseries welcomes Brian Scanlon as their new Hardscapes Sales Specialist. He will work out of the Hopkinton location but will oversee the stone business in their Chelmsford store as well.

Brian comes to Weston with a strong background in hardscapes and green goods. He is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst with a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Design.

He became a wholesale sales representative at Bigelow Nurseries and then served as General Manager for Camosse Masonry Supply in Worcester. Most recently Brian worked with Terrascaping & Construction, Inc. where he was the lead in sales & design.

Weston Nurseries, well known for plants, realized there was strong demand from their customers for stone products. President, Peter Mezitt says; “Our staff has been convinced we should offer stone products lines to our customers because stone, along with plants comprise the majority of products our customers need for their landscape projects. We needed a champion and we are very excited to have Brian on our team. He has a tremendous amount of knowledge with all aspects of hardscaping. Not only can he manage the purchasing and selling side of the stone business, but he will help train our staff to become more knowledgeable about the manufactured and natural stone product lines and offer design assistance to our customers. What’s more, he really knows his plants! We think he will be a very strong addition to our team.”
