About Shane:

shane-head-shot-220Shane possesses a vast amount of knowledge from his experience in landscape design, turf care, grounds maintenance, as well as pool design and construction. He has been featured multiple times in newspapers and magazines all around the metro atlanta area for the best of outdoor living and most recently, he has been awarded among the Top 50 World’s Greatest Pools.

Born and raised in Louisiana, Shane began at an early age working and learning from experienced designers and nursery managers. When his family moved to Georgia, he soon began working in tree farms and turf growth management. He majored in Business Management at Southern Crescent Technical College.

He founded Selective Designs in the mid 90’s and has grown the company to where it is today. Starting as a custom design/build company for landscaping, outdoor living, outdoor kitchens, pools and spas, etc. – Shane has stayed focused on the original mission to enhance outdoor spaces and an environment comfortable for living and entertaining. Selective Designs prides itself on turn key projects with clients not having to call someone different for everything they need in their yard. Growth has continued and now includes sister companies for lawn maintenance, pool, and irrigation and lighting. Which means less calls for the consumer to make while still working with the same group within one ownership structure.
