Meet Andrew Langlois of SLS Landscape Design and Development

Today we’d like to introduce you to Andrew Langlois.

Andrew began working in the landscaping industry at age 15, while he was attending Amesbury High School. After earning degrees in Landscape Contracting (Stockbridge School of Agriculture) and Environmental Design (UMass Amherst), he worked as Garden Design Field Manager for Winston Flowers in Boston, where he met his wife, Courtney, a floral designer. Andrew, who passed the Massachusetts Landscape Professionals Association exam in 2011, likes spending his free time with his family in the outdoors as well, camping, fishing, beachgoing, hiking, riding his Harley-Davidson and working in his own gardens.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Our services are increasingly in demand from a variety of sources. Our clients expect the delivery of these services from professionals in their respective field. These individuals must be polite, trustworthy, honest and knowledgeable. Continually, year after year we solicit a variety of notable locations in the procurement of such professionals to carry out the contractual obligations to our customers. However, we have seen a significant decline in the volume of qualified applicants over the years.
