Southern Landscape Renovations (SLR) was established on April 1, 2010 by long time friends Ric Bennett and Tyler Brown. And as the saying goes… the rest is history.
Since its inception in 2010, SLR has grown into a full-service landscaping company providing outdoor service needs for both residential and commercial properties. Customer Service is number one and the team’s versatility is endless. Whether we are meeting for an initial quote, completing an entire property renovation, or merely providing general lawn maintenance, our goal at SLR is to provide great customer service and professional results.
A life-long resident of Fairhope, Ric is as passionate about life as he is about landscaping. He enjoys golfing, free-diving, spearfishing and spending time with his family. When he is not on the fairways, or renovating your property, you can find Ric enjoying the great outdoors and life on the Gulf Coast.
While he enjoys all aspects of the industry, he is particularly passionate about creating self-sustaining landscapes that benefit both the property owner and nature. In his role at SLR, Ric leads the team in landscape layout, plant placement and creating outdoor entertaining areas that bring the indoors, outside. Ric is also a dedicated fan of Mississippi State Athletics. He obtained a bachelor’s degree in Landscaping Contracting and Management from Mississippi State University and is certified/licensed in Setting of Landscape Plants. He chose Mississippi State University because they have one of the top Landscape Programs in the country and was the first University in the world to offer a Landscape Contracting and Management Degree.
Ric and his wife Lauren live in Fairhope with their two daughters.
If you’ve spent any time in Fairhope, then you’ll find just about everybody knows Tyler.

With more than eight years of experience in the industry, he understands the value of outstanding customer service and getting the job done right.
Tyler specializes in overall maintenance needs and preparing visually appealing landscapes, specifically designed for our southern climate. While he enjoys all aspects of the industry, he is particularly passionate about maintaining self-sustaining landscapes that benefit both the property owner and nature.
When he’s not at SLR, you can find Tyler and his wife Claire enjoying time outdoors, spending time with their daughter and son, and taking advantage of the many great community activities that Fairhope and the Eastern Shore have to offer.
