Garrett Magee was born in Texas and raised in Tennessee. At an early age Garrett knew he had a creative eye, and has been a nature lover from his first memories growing up in the beautiful wooded South. Garrett attended the Art Institute of Chicago to study graphic design and fine arts. After working in corporate design for many years Garrett grew frustrated with always working in front of a computer and decided to broaden his horizons, and go back to his roots. He began attending classes at the New York Botanical Gardens for landscape design to tap into his calling as a true “plant whisperer”. It was there that he honed his craft in exterior design and co-founded Manscapers, which grew into an exclusive exterior design and high-end landscaping firm. Garrett currently resides in New York and enjoys traveling the world, photo-documenting his life, lending his green thumb, and spending time with his triplet-nieces.
