Pat is co-owner of The Barefoot Gardener LLC. 

Pat grew up in Columbia, CT. Before settling in Lyme, CT he lived in Arizona for many years. He has a wonderful daughter, who is a student in AZ.


Pat has the ability to transform any space into something truly magnificent. 

The skills which Patrick has refined over the years came from on the job training. Simply put, he learned from some of the best carpenters on the CT shoreline. 

In his spare time Pat enjoys boating, attending endless softball games and practices, leading his Cub Scouts troop, working on his fixer upper house... clearly I was kidding, no spare time!
