Ethan Whitney (Owner and Head Designer) - As the son of a well-known design professional at the premier Nursery in the United States, Whitney LAndscape LA owner, Ethan Whitney, learned all aspects of the industry at an early age. Under the mentorship of his father, Lew Whitney, of Roger's Gardens in Newport Beach, Ethan was destined on the path to one day become an accomplished designer himself. At the age of 13, Ethan began working at Roger's Gardens, working his way up from carryout and stocker, to become the youngest customer service representative in their history at the age of 17. He then transitioned into the installation division, where he was trained by some of the most experienced landscape designers and foremen in California. Ethan studied environmental horticulture, landscape design, and turf management at California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) San Luis Obispo, and later founded Whitney LAndscaping LA in 2005. Today, Ethan is considered one of the top landscape designers in Southern California.
Colman McDonagh (Head of Operations) - Colman has been a key part of the Whitney Landscape team since day one. Under the tutelage of Lew and Ethan, he has become an expert on irrigation, drainage, maintenance, lighting and plants. With a background in pest and plant disease control, he holds several pest control and plant disease spray application licenses.
