Tony Werner | President

Tony's first encounter with working outdoors was memorable for its misery. Working long days on the family farm, Tony passed the sweaty hours vowing never to labor outside again. Never say never, for these days Tony loves his "office without walls" and the connection to nature that working outside brings.

Originally, Tony planned to combine his award-winning art skills with an architecture degree, but detoured when a friend mentioned that landscape architecture would better satisfy all of Tony's passions. He received his BLA from the esteemed School of Environmental Design at the University of Georgia and went on to hone his design, project management and business skills at well-known regional design/build landscape firms such as White Oak Landscape Co. and Landscapes of Marietta. In 1988, sensing a need for a full service landscaping firm with an emphasis on quality and customer service, Tony planted the seeds of Werner Landscapes in Marietta. Today, that tiny seed has grown into a sturdy, broad-branched design/build/maintenance operation - but has not lost sight of their founding principle of individual attention and customer satisfaction.

A true renaissance man, Tony lives in Marietta with his wife Laura and two daughters, where he spends his time writing novels, playing tennis and thrashing all challengers in ping pong. He also enjoys expanding his landscaping knowledge, and is currently researching the latest in environmentally friendly techniques such as xeriscaping and water reclamation.
