Taylor Matheson was born and raised in south Florida. His parents being avid outdoors people raised Taylor and his siblings in the sun. Naturally Taylor spent most of his time in youth exploring all Florida had to offer. From diving fresh water springs and coral reefs to hiking and hunting the Everglades Taylor grew up with nature.

At 23, when Taylor’s high school sweetheart came back to town for a visit, she offered that he return with her to California. A week later he boarded his first commercial flight. After seeing the Mountains on final approach to L.A.X. he knew there was no turning back. He spent his first five years in the city of Los Angeles hiking and Volunteering in the local Mountains before moving to the Central Coast to start a family. It was there that his love of the outdoors and passion for helping the environment and those people within it coincided. He stumbled into a career doing drought tolerant landscaping, he found that this combined his lust for digging holes with the ability to help people get outside and enjoy their own yard in a way they never thought was possible. Taylor has been working in drought tolerant landscaping for the better part of two years and founded Native Touch Landscapes in 2017. His mission is to create a landscape that will get you to spend more time outside, whether that be cooking and enjoying a meal, making sure that your lawn is water efficient, or enjoying the local wildlife in while sipping a nice chardonnay. -Native Touch Landscapes- (805) 723-0916
