Yard Pros host Mills Grant is a 1997 graduate of Clemson University where he earned his Bachelor of Science degree in ornamental horticulture. An expert in the science of cultivating plants – fruits, vegetables, flowers, grass, ornamental trees and plants, Mills is staff horticulturist for Carolina Fresh Farms. Mills has been lecturing about gardening and landscaping statewide for more than 15 years. His articles have appeared in several Southern Home & Garden Show supplemental publications.

Mills serves as Board Member for the Upstate Turf Grass Association and is an active member of several organizations including the Carolina Golf Course Superintendents Association, South Carolina Sod Producers Association, and Home Builders Association.

On a more personal note, Mills’ decision to pursue a career in horticulture was the result of years of hard work and enterprising fortitude. Having grown up in the small town of Clinton, South Carolina, Mills “saw an opportunity to earn spending money mowing his neighbors’ lawns.” Over the course of a few short summers, his “lawn mowing jobs” became a true business. And, in high school, it was no surprise that he found himself working on weekends for the Musgrove Mills Golf Club. “Working at Musgrove Mills was the perfect job. Not only was I doing something I enjoyed, I got to play golf.”

A native of Upstate South Carolina, Mills currently resides in Greenville with his wife, Heidi, and three children, Emily, Gram and Julia.
