Earth Wizards started business in March 2000. The owner, Stacy Anderson, grew up working in all aspects of a family asphalt business: installation, estimating, bidding, and management. When starting Earth Wizards, her passion for clean water inspired her to take paving practices in a different direction. Driveways, parking lots and roadways are obviously still necessary, but approaching these projects with a sensitivity to waterways, habitats, budgets and maintenance became the new goal. Over the past 20+ years, the entire Earth Wizards team has become quite good at knowing what works and what doesn’t.
With family members and key staff we take great pride in the 20+ years in this industry and are always looking to get better. We have three generations of paving craftspeople and have just embraced the idea that it’s in our blood. We enjoy what we do, we love the people we get to work with and we feel honored to be trusted by our customer’s to be at their homes and businesses to get things done right, on time and on budget.
Thanks for taking the time to learn more about us and feel free to reach out to us! We’d love to hear from you!
Meet the Team
PRESIDENT AND DESIGN PRINCIPAL
Stacy grew up working on the installation crews in her family’s asphalt business all over the Twin Cities. After college, she became involved with the Minnesota Erosion Control Association and other organizations concerned with stormwater BMPs, she decided to do things a little differently in the paving world. Her non-working passion is rowing and you might see a 30’ shell atop her 2004 Volvo.
Jeff oversees our paving projects and supervises crews to ensure every project is done to its particular specifications. He’s always noticing the little things that end up making a project great, rather than just good. Despite a busy construction season he continues to play racquetball and is involved with State and World racquetball tournaments. If you’ve longed to pick up the sport or to be an avid fan, talk to Jeff.
Shelly was one of our customers from way back and has been with Earth Wizards since 2004. Originally from Wisconsin, she maintains her loyalty to her beloved Green Bay Packers. We are proud of how dearly she is loved by our customers. It’s typical that our customers give her rave reviews about her genuiness, attentiveness and care.
Derek’s wittiness keeps us and our customer’s entertained. He is able to handle several aspects of project installation from driving truck, to operating the paver and being detailed with the little things. We’re elated to see him grow into project management as his people skills and technology awareness is helping to bring our business operations up to speed!
Liam has a passion for concrete. We’re not sure why but he loves perfecting all the nuances that come with concrete. Not only does he operate the skidloaders with ease but he can back up a truck into the tightest of spots. He’s a proud father of two active young kids, enjoys lifting weights and takes great pride in all the Minnesota sport teams.
Gary has been in the asphalt world for 50+ years with a diverse background in both small and large-scale paving projects. He is our construction and life guru in many respects. You may see him meandering around your project, even when the crews aren’t onsite, contemplating and problem-solving. When he’s not thinking about construction (which is most of the time), you may see him working on a crossword.
We don’t win the business race in our industry; instead we feel like our consistent hard working ethos, our genuine nature and concern for the earth is well-represented by the turtle.
Earth Wizards was very responsive to our inquiry and arrived as scheduled for our estimate. We were given helpful information and hints that other companies would not provide to us. We were impressed with their competency and advice. The work crew did an excellent job and were very professional. Surely, one cannot ask for more.
