Laura LeBoutillier information

Getting into gardening-

She grew up gardening and loved growing freckled lettuce.

In 1990, her parents started getting involved with the Andrews Seed Co., and Laura started helping her parents in gardening; she was 6 at the time.

Initially, her parents worked at Andrews Seed Co. and later they bought it from the old owner, David.

At a young age, Laura used to do daily chores at the garden center like watering, weeding, cutting thistles out of the pasture; she felt working in the center to be a total slave labor and decided to never end up doing gardening as her job.

But eventually she fell in love with gardening and made a career out of it.

Laura learnt a great deal about gardening from working at her parents’ garden center and large garden; thanks to working at the garden center, she studied numerous plants and learnt plant names, plant varieties and how they grow.


She studied nursing.

After studying for a two-year degree at a community college, Laura moved to England to attend a Bible College there but didn’t stay even for a whole semester.

She doesn’t have any formal training in horticulture.

‘Garden Answer’-

In 2014, Aaron bought a new video camera; he has been interested in videography and at the time, he wanted something to film; so, he started filming some of Laura’s garden projects.

As they wanted to do something together, on 23 May 2014, they started ‘Garden Answer’ YouTube channel and started publishing gardening videos.

‘Garden Answer’ was their hobby, born out of Aaron’s love for videography and Laura’s love for gardening.

The first video, ‘How to Make a Succulent Wreath’, was published on 25 June 2014.

The ‘Garden Answer’ started out with a MacBook Pro and a Canon camera.

They used to work on their YouTube channel every evening and weekend and for a long time, it was unfruitful, but they persisted and started publishing videos more often and eventually, ‘Garden Answer’ channel gained momentum and became successful.

Laura’s goal through ‘Garden Answer’ is to educate people about gardening and inspire them to garden.

She grew up working at her parents’ garden center and continued working there even while she was working at a full-time job, but later due to time constraints she stopped working at the garden center.

In 2016, Aaron quit his job to become a full-time YouTuber and Laura also followed his footsteps; by that time, ‘Garden Answer’ was earning them money.

Prior working on ‘Garden Answer’, Laura did a few music videos on ‘Aaron LeBoutillier’ YouTube channel.

Personal life-

They started hanging out in their early twenties.
