YouTube for Louis's hit-and-run videos.










Louis the Plant Geek is Louis Raymond, a professional landscape designer (and raconteur) who knew at age 3 that he was a gardener.


Sidetracked by an early-adult career as a coloratura bass (because he could sing!), Louis has been designing and installing gardens full of uncommon & astonishing horticulture, creating flower shows, and lecturing (on the history, sociology, aesthetics, and, of course, horticulture of gardens) across the country for more than twenty years.


His work has been featured in many major publications, and he’s enjoyed appearing on a variety of national and local television shows.


Louis continues to work happily on his own garden in Southern Rhode Island, which is at the heart of this web project. 






Richard Ericson, Louis’s partner, shoots, edits and produces the featured one-minute videos.  He is also a theatrical producer.


Richard and Louis split their time between New York City and Rhode Island.

They are awesome, and give us our rush of zing.  www.FirecrackerJazz.com.
