Meet Our People!
We’re Not Your Average Service Providers, We’re a Family of Specialists

Chris Imlach, Owner
Chris has always had a great love for the outdoors. No matter the season, you’ll find him soaking up the sun. Hiking, mountain biking, skiing, kayaking, you name it— he’s outside doing it. That’s why Chris founded Green Sphere, to use his zeal for nature to encourage others to enjoy their outdoor escapes right at home. His business smarts and dedication to forming a passionate landscaping family make him a powerful industry leader. He encourages growth by helping his employees and company thrive every day. Off the clock, you’ll find Chris throwing a football with his kids or relaxing with his business partner and wife, Andrea.
Patty Bowen, Accounting/Office Administrator
Internally, Patty keeps Green Sphere afloat. She’s lived all over the country working in accounting, small business administration, banking, and even owned her own construction company. Patty is also a certified dog trainer- or People with Dogs Trainer - as she refers to it! Her diverse background makes Patty the perfect swiss army knife for office operations, ensuring all is in order, day in and day out.
Andrea Imlach, Human Resources/Payroll
As the wife of our founder, Andrea has been with Green Sphere since the beginning. Long before we opened our office doors, it was Andrea who hand wrote invoices from the Imlach kitchen table. After ten years spent working in payroll for a local employment organization, she formally joined the Green Sphere team as our human resources guru. When she’s not planning ways to delight employees (who else has an HR hero who keeps a freezer full of ice cream treats?) This upbeat payroll officer ventures outside with her children, husband, and crazy pups any chance she gets for hiking, camping and mountain biking.
Shawn Roberts, Operations Manager
With well over 30 years of experience in the green industry, “Horticulture” is Shawn’s middle name. Okay, it’s actually not, but when it comes to lawn & shrub care or pest control, he’s your man. As the manager of Green Sphere, Shawn spends his time hiring the best tech's he can find and then educating them further on all things fertilization. This will also be the smiling face you see when you need an estimate! Outside of work, you can find him coaching youth baseball or catching the breeze on Lake Winnipesaukee.
Jake Gilbert, Field Manager
With almost 2 decades of experience creating lush greenery on golf courses, Jake knows how to nurture quality turf. His dual degrees in Plant & Soil sciences as well as Turf Management have prepared him with the expert knowledge to care for your landscape. Fertilization is something Jake is passionate about, and the ability to do what he loves while supporting his family, brings him rich fulfillment. When he’s not helping to run Green Sphere, you'll find him at home raising his two young daughters, outside working on his own landscaping or taking an occasional fishing trip.
Shawn Ward, Technician
With over 10 years of crew leadership under his belt, Shawn Ward joined the Green Sphere team in early 2019. Along with his experience, Shawn brings with him a positive attitude and an undeniably strong work ethic! As the father of two young children, Shawn is always on the move. When he does have the chance to take some time for himself, he enjoys watching and participating in almost any sport and adding to his prized sneaker collection, he has over 500 pairs!
Dillon heads up the Tick & Mosquito as well as Perimeter Pest control services at Green Sphere, leveraging his extensive knowledge of lawn care. He joined the Green Industry in 2017 and has been an integral member of our team since early 2019. In addition to his professional pursuits, Dillon has a passion for strength sports and has competed in strongman competitions. His imposing physique speaks for itself when you see him in person. More recently, Dillon has taken a step back from strongman competitions and now spends his weekends playing golf, except for when he's traveling to New York twice a month to compete in a wiffle ball league. In the fall of 2024, Dillon will be tying the knot with his high school sweetheart.
Tyler is the newest addition to our Green Industry team, having started in 2022 and joining us in 2023. In a short time, he has made a positive impression and proven himself as a hard worker and a great guy. Tyler specializes in Tick & Mosquito Control and can often be found riding shotgun with Dillon in our Big Mean/Green Tick and Mosquito Fighting machine (our large van). Outside of work, Tyler is a devoted father of three, with two sons and a young daughter. When not fulfilling his fatherly duties, Tyler loves to hike and spends as much time as possible on local trails or in the White Mountains, whether for day hikes or overnight treks. He also enjoys fishing, both in freshwater and saltwater, and counts catching an enormous largemouth bass at the age of 13 as one of his favorite fishing memories.
Nick began his green industry career in 2017 after an unsatisfying stint as a dental assistant. Nick realized he was an outdoor person and the dental office was not where he wanted to be. At Green Sphere, Nick specializes in all things turf and is a master at educating customers on how to get the most out of their lawns while reducing water usage. During the day, Nick devours audiobooks while treating our customers' properties. On weekends in the summer, you'll find him boating out of the Merrimac and relaxing on the backside of Cranes or seeing Country Music concerts.
Has worked in the Green Industry starting from a young age working with his father and came on board with us a few seasons ago on the landscaping side before moving into a Fertilization Technician role in 2022 proving to be an invaluable asset to our operations. Specializing in the lawn fertilization Evan has spent extensive time building out our training for new employees to learn identification and treatment of issues in the field. A creative person at heart Evan has spent over 15 years in the performing arts, producing, writing and working as an actor, model and stuntman. Trained at the HB Studio in Manhattan, he has a title role in an independent feature film to his credit!
Fern is a Wired Haired Pointing Griffon. While not much of field tech, she tends to wander off when she should be paying attention to the job at hand- she is a great source of comic relief for us!
