Scott graduated from Oklahoma State University in 1991 with a degree in Landscape Architecture. After working for several landscaping companies and owning his own landscape design business, he joined Nelson Landscaping in 2018.
Along with countless commercial properties and homes, Scott has designed landscapes for over sixteen residential subdivisions and was chosen by former Edmond Mayor Saundra Naifeh to help design and manage a community beautification project for the Oklahoma National Guard building.
For Scott, no project is ever the same. Ever. He works with the physical aspects of each property along with the goals of the property owner in order to design landscapes that are not only custom and unique but also beautiful and sustainable.
Whether it be improving sightline views, grade, drainage, irrigation, designing a small xeriscape bed, a brand new landscape for a new house, a tear out and remodel of an existing landscape, or an extravagant outdoor living space complete with swimming pool, kitchen, pergola/pavilion, fireplace, firepit, koi pond, and pondless water feature, Scott can do it all.
When he isn’t designing landscapes, he loves to travel, scuba dive, attend OSU games, BBQ, and spend time with his wife and family.
Travis has spent the majority of his career in sales within the construction industry. Prior to joining Nelson Landscaping, he was the branch manager for one of the largest siding companies in Oklahoma. However, landscaping has been in Travis’ blood ever since the days of running his own lawn mowing company when he was a teenager. Travis joined Nelson Landscaping in 2015, but he and Andy have been childhood friends since the 1st grade.
Travis spends most of his days meeting with potential clients and discussing their needs for landscaping or outdoor living spaces. He enjoys guiding clients through the process of designing and budgeting for their project in order to bring their outdoor dream to life. He uses his knowledge and expertise to make the process easy and stress-free for anyone looking to update their outdoor space.
Travis is known for always being happy and curious. Oddly enough, the only time you will catch this landscaper without a smile is if he sees a spider.

We’re proud to have Shirley as the first impression of Nelson Landscaping. As the Office Receptionist, Shirley is the beginning of the excellent customer service that we pursue. From answering phones to scheduling appointments to posting payments and much more, Shirley goes above and beyond in order to provide a great experience for each customer.
Growing up, Shirley wanted to be a flight attendant but she didn’t meet the height requirement to be able to reach the overhead compartment. Since then she’s done it all: furniture sales, church receptionist, Mary Kay beauty consultant, police dispatch, building computers for GE and Honeywell. Prior to joining Nelson Landscaping in 2016, Shirley worked at AT&T for 23 years in various roles including customer service and support for escalated customers.
When Shirley isn’t at work, you can find her enjoying life with her husband of 55 years, reading, and spending time with her grandkids and great-grandkids.
