Starting with my first job at a plant nursery in Athens GA  I knew that I wanted to work outdoors and with plants. I was fortunate to be able to find something I love so easily. While attending UGA I was awarded a scholarship to study tropical agriculture in Costa Rica and worked in the horticulture greenhouses helping professors with their research. I have always had a love for plants and design and I would love to come help you.

New Roots Lawn & Landscapes LLC was formed in 2008 by Roth Friar.  I have been working here on the Gulf Coast since 2005. Shortly after graduating from the University of Georgia with a degree in Horticulture, I moved down here and started my business. 

We like to incorporate edible and native plants into our designs. We try our best to be good stewards of the land. We have a delicate ecosystem here and want to be sure that nothing we do will upset or harm any wildlife. We really like to use plants to bring in wildlife from butterflies and hummingbirds to bats and bees. We try to create welcoming landscapes not just for our customers but also for wildlife and neighbors.   

We perform background checks on all our employees and they all pay taxes. We carry worker compensation and general liability insurance. Our workers are paid higher than most companies in our area because they are better and they are trustworthy. We don't have the turnover that most companies have in this area.

We can transfer you yard into your ideal vision. We work closely with our customers to make sure their ideas come to fruition as they imagined.  We can design install and maintain any garden you can come up with. As well as design a meticulous landscape with only a vague idea of what your needs and wants may be. So contact us today to set up your appointment to begin the process.
