Drew Taylor brings a new enthusiasm to LA Gardens as he can see your gardens through the eye of a camera. He is a very talented photographer. We will be using that talent to get a seasonal vision of your gardens this year. Drew comes to us after working for the City of Barrie in the Arboretum. This year he has gained a wealth of knowledge as he completed his first year of the Horticultural Technicians Apprenticeship Program at Humber College. He looks forward to incorporating what he has learned into your landscape.
