Meet Laurie Fisher

A. A. “Buck” Jones & Assoc.

The Story:
With four locations and a new online store, Laurie Fisher is president of a rare find- a second generation family landscape supply business, A. A. “Buck” Jones & Assoc. established in 1972 ,by her father, Buck Jones. Helping our landscape contractors and home gardeners be successful has been our company focus for 38 years.

How I Got Here:

My dad taught me the value of hard work and relationships. I have a great team and never lose sight of the value my employees bring to the business. We have always embraced our customers and employees as family.

What I Do For Fun:
I stay very busy with three teenagers. I love to travel, see new places. Mostly, I love being at my kids sport events. We stay so busy that on a free night just turning up the music and being with my family is the best!

My Big Dream:
I am a member of Gwinnett Rotary, U. W. Women’s Legacy, YPO, and many industry associations. With the water issues, those of us in this industry know the impact environment has on businesses and the need for understanding.

What’s Next For Me:
I would like to help develop relationships between businesses, environmental, and government agencies to develop strategies to help businesses such as ours and those along the Gulf Coast in the future effected by these issues.
