I grew up on a small farm in North Carolina, where I learned the meaning of hard work through using my hands to live off the land. My love for the outdoors stemmed from those long days planting crops, tilling, fertilizing, watering, and finally harvesting them. I learned that it’s a process that takes a lot of persistence and patience.

Hey there

I'm Fawn Renae

I remember riding the school bus in elementary and middle school and visualizing how I would change and add plants to the landscapes of my friend's homes to give more curb appeal. It seemed so natural to me.

I pursued college and graduated with both my horticulture and turfgrass degrees. From there, I began my career in the sports field industry managing athletic fields and campus landscaping. I worked my way up the ladder to a management position, educating, instructing, and supervising a full-time crew. On weekends, I expanded my knowledge and skills to the professional level, preparing fields like the Carolina Panthers and Charlotte Knights field for game days.

My entire life, I've been gaining skills and knowledge, learning different trades, perfecting my craft, and executing hard work in pursuit of fulfilling my purpose in this life. With ten years of landscape/sports field management under my belt, I’m tapping back into my childhood vision of transforming landscapes through designs.

I’m also the co-founder of Those Plant Ladies, with my twin sister Heather. We started it together because we wanted to inspire, educate, and empower women to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty. Fawn Renae Designs contracts Those Plant Ladies for many of our installations that are local to the southeast. You can read more about that here.
