“WE BRING NATURE HOME.”

Laurence Watt, Groundskeeper


I’ve been hanging around horticulture since I was a kid. My grandpa got me into appreciating garden design. The landscape at his Palos Verdes home was magical. These hillsides had spiral staircases and transitioning terraces that were filled with interesting bugs, curious amphibians and sun-basking reptiles. He taught me the value of using recycled materials—like making paths and faux streams out of broken concrete pavers lined with old rail timbers seated in gravel. The one bit of advice I remember most is that you pull weeds out by hand, rather than giving them “haircuts with a hoe.”

I did pursue Landscape Architecture in my formal college years, but as the tech boom hit and my family started growing earlier than planned, I had to change majors and ride the computer wave. However, after my children went off to find their own respective careers, I had my chance to get back to what I loved doing—working in the garden—and voilà, Renew Landscape was born.
