Chief Executive Officer
Trina Julian is the Founder of Country Girl Gardens, established in 2015. The inspiration for starting a landscape company began when she became passionate about gardening and growing a good amount of her own fruits and vegetables at home.
Trina is passionate about providing landscape services that are good for the client, and also good for the environment. This is done by hiring people who are passionate about the same things and ensuring that they are knowledgeable about soil conditions, plants, and proper installation of hardscapes and softscapes. We strive to mostly use environmentally friendly herbicides, pesticides, and horticulture practices.
Trina is a graduate of the University of Idaho, with a degree in Business Management. She is passionate about building an environment where people can become their best selves. In the winter months when landscaping is slower, she provides opportunities for her employees to expand their knowledge through attending classes related to landscaping and irrigation; completing certifications whenever possible.
Trina lives on a small farm in Hayden, Idaho with her husband Dylan and her many fur children. During her spare time she loves to horseback ride and she also competes in endurocross and hard enduro races on her dirtbike.
Emma joined the Country Girl Gardens family in May of 2022 and works closely with Trina in the office, keeping the company functioning. She originally hails from California, where she worked as the Office Manager at a veterinary clinic. The skills she possesses from her previous role have prepared her to jump into her role here at CGG. She is loving learning more about landscaping and plant maintenance everyday. In addition to assisting in the office, she manages the social media for the company.
She attended California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) and earned her Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science. During her time in college and through Cal Poly’s hands-on approach of “Learn by Doing,” she was immersed in agriculture and learned lots about where our food comes from, both animal and plant sources. This ignited a passion in her to have her own farm someday on which to produce meat, milk, eggs, and fresh produce for her family. Ultimately this led her, her husband, their 2 dogs, and 2 horses here to Northern Idaho.
In her spare time, she enjoys expanding her knowledge about plants, permaculture, and sustainable farming practices, and tending to their growing menagerie of animals. She can often be found out in the forest exploring, hunting, and soaking up the beauty of Idaho’s wilderness.
