Gary and Margo Loop – Owners of Atreeum and Plantmasters
Gary has his horticulture degree from K-State, where he found his passion for plants and mainly tropical plants. Gary’s specialty is plant design and client relations, and he is responsible for getting the greenhouse that we now call Atreeum into the amazing shape it is currently in. Margo earned her Master’s degree from UNK in Nebraska. Margo’s specialty is running the corporate office, finances, floral and wedding décor, and Christmas décor.
Gary and Margo purchased the greenhouse in 2020, and the family started renovations right away. Gary was able to put his horticulture degree to use with his expertise and knowledge of greenhouses. Atreeum opened for its first event on May 30th, 2021. Having 9000 sq. ft. of greenhouse and 40 acres, the Loops will likely never stop adding to their dream business, which has now become a beautiful reality.
