To introduce myself, my name is Brian Glenn. While I always liked mowing lawns, my interest in landscapes really accelerated as a college student with a summer job pruning shrubs at Brigham Young University. That fall, I enrolled in "Living with Plants", and from there I was hooked. I switched my major to Landscape Management, and spent the rest of my undergraduate working and repairing sports turf around campus. Feeling like there was so much more to learn, I pursued graduate work at the University of Florida, where I was exposed to all things warm season (as well as a never-ending supply of weeds!). By the time I was done, I had finished with a Ph.D. in horticulture. I then came back to southern California, working in technical services in vegetation management. While I am in constant awe about how much there is to learn about the natural world around us, I want to use the knowledge I have gained to provide solutions in the landscaping industry. Few things compare with the satisfaction of solving a complex problem and seeing results!
