We love our customers so much, they’re practically family! To honor these new additions to the Leigh Country family, every month we’re going to feature a customer of the month!

This month we are proud to feature Mr. Robert Griffis and his lovely front porch!


This is definitely causing a serious case of porch envy!


Mr. Griffis was gracious enough to let us interview him for our Customer of the Month Spotlight:

Leigh Country: We’d love to hear more about you. What are some interesting tidbits about yourself you’d like to share?

Robert Griffis: I am a native of Texas but spent my formative years in New Orleans and have lived in several places: Mississippi, Florida, Colorado, and New York. I moved [back] to Palmer, TX from New York with my daughter Hannah, my son Nate, and our Chocolate Lab Brees, two years ago, to take a position in Dallas at my company’s corporate office. I’ve worked for more than 24 years for Freeman in New Orleans, Orlando, Denver, New York, and currently am the Corporate Director of Freight Operations.


Doesn’t this porch look inviting?


LC: Wow that’s true company loyalty! We definitely respect that. So what do you like to do when you aren’t working?

RG: When I’m not working I look forward to downtime in the evening at home sitting on my front porch in my new rockers, that I purchased from my favorite store H-E-B, with my girlfriend Megan, sipping on some sweet tea and gazing up at the Texas night sky, counting stars and sharing stories.


All you need is a glass of iced tea!


LC: Now that sounds like our kind of evening! What other activities keep you outdoors?

RG: I enjoy traveling, hiking, horseback, riding, fishing, and family time.


Let us know in the comments if you would like to see a post on how to make a stacked pot planter like this one!


LC: Now that is some true Authentic Country Living if we do say so ourselves!  Thank you so much for sharing with us!

RG: You’re welcome! I [am] more than happy with your products. I plan to take time this fall to make my backyard look as great as the front. I’m going to get the windmill next!

LC: That’s a great choice! We hope to see pictures of that too! Thank you again!


This is Mr. Robert Griffis himself, representing the Big D – Dallas!
