Playing in the dirt has always been a part of John Shepherd's life, Southern Cross Outdoor's founder, as long as he can remember. Raised by avid gardeners who loved making their yards beautiful with an abundance of blooming flowers, fresh vegetables and plenty of hard work, John's love for the outdoors began at an early age.


As a young guy, he started out like most teenagers driving around the neighborhood with his dad's mower aspiring to be a businessman. Through the years, he has continued to provide maintenance for clients all over South Atlanta while trying his hand with different professions, growing his skillset and attending school to become a certified landscape specialist.


While working with a few green industry professionals before getting on with a prestigious design/build company paired with a formal education, John's knowledge of landscape design and outdoor living has grown by leaps and bounds.  With over 15 experience, John and his team are more than prepared to lead this company to success.   He looks forward to sharing his passion with you!
