Creative Nature by NSS specializes in landscape design and installation. Creative Nature grew out of a desire to provide a top tier landscape design and installation service for the Greater Des Moines Metro Area. For close to a decade, our team has been gaining experience in the landscaping field through our work as Norwalk Seasonal Services. Our landscaping service offerings and portfolio has grown large enough to become a business of its own. Thus, Creative Nature was born.


Clayton Garrison - Owner and Operator of Creative Nature Iowa, Norwalk Seasonal Services, and co-owner of Grounds Around Town.
Clayton GarrisonOwner & Operator
Creative Nature is owned and operated by Clayton Garrison. Clayton began his journey into the industry in 2013 while helping his father-in-law while he needed to take a leave of absence from his snow removal business. Eventually Clayton decided that he wanted to make a go of starting his own company. Working nights and weekends, he built his client list up enough to quit his corporate job back in 2017. Since then, Clayton, an entrepreneur at his core, has been growing Norwalk Seasonal Services, Grounds Around Town (a mobile coffee shop in Norwalk), and now, Creative Nature.

A family man at his core, Clayton Garrison is focused on a balanced lifestyle that includes plenty of time for his wife and daughters. While reserving sometime for himself enjoying spending time with friends, practicing yoga, outdoor sports, and attending concerts.

Clayton’s favorite part of business is meeting new people, growing a strong team culture, and producing award winning work.

Fun fact about Clayton: He loves food! He considers himself a “foodie.”

Megan Farley - Account Manager and Brand Ambassador for NSS
MeganAccount Manager / Brand Ambassador
I come from a Winemaking & Vineyard Management background with a passion for all things outdoors. I studied with the Midwest Grape & Wine Institute and was awarded Iowa Vineyard of the Year in 2022 for my achievements in pest and fungicide management. When I’m not working, you’ll find me traveling with my significant other, Bobby, throwing the ball around for my dog, Lew, fishing and trying out local restaurants and boutiques.

I have passion for curating an exceptional customer service experience, and am excited to be joining the team at Norwalk Seasonal Services as their Account Manager.
