Since his early teens, landscaping has been an instrumental part of his life. Owner and operator of Pacific Impressions Inc., Ryan Domka, first started his landscape career by mowing neighbors lawns, pulling weeds, trimming bushes, and raking fall leaves. After high school, Ryan pursued an education in horticulture from The Ohio State University ATI in Wooster, Ohio.
During his college years, Ryan traveled to the state of Oregon to participate in an internship program where he worked for a large landscape company that served both residential and commercial customers. While learning and coming to understand the green industry, Ryan began to realize that the Pacific Northwest was highly advanced in landscaping concepts compared to what he had observed in Ohio. In 2004, while still in school, Ryan started Pacific Impressions Inc. with the intent of bringing new ideas and concepts from the Pacific Northwest back to the Midwest.
