Jon Schirmer

Jon is a long time staple here at Laurel Oak Landscaping, having started with us in 1997 and currently serving as our landscaping General Manager.  With over 20 years’ experience in the industry, there is not much Jon has not seen or done when it comes to landscaping,  hardscaping,  selecting plants,  and building water features and ponds.  Jon’s landscaping career started as a part-time job in college – and then he decided a career that enabled him to be outdoors was for him.  While Jon primarily focuses on landscaping, you will also find him behind the grill at many of our Garden Center events.  He is an avid foodie, and even has a sandwich named after him at a local restaurant.  His biggest claim to fame is baking a 5 minute brownie in 3 minutes.  When at home, Jon actively gardens and is currently busy turning his own property into a beautiful habitat for birds, insects and other wildlife.

Leonardo Hernandez

Known as “Jefe” to his friends and co-workers, Leo has been with Laurel Oak since 2008.  Leo is one of our landscaping foremen and has over 20 years’ experience in the industry.  If your project is large, Leo will most likely be leading the Laurel Oak charge on it.  He is a master at getting work done – quickly, properly, efficiently and beautifully.  Leo has an ongoing love affair with Crape Myrtle trees, due to their long bloom season and vibrant color, and is happiest when working on a job that includes them.  When not creating gorgeous landscapes, Leo is often found making his favorite dish – Mojarra (a type of fish) with lime.
