Stan grew up in an agriculturally based family. The Crockett family business (Crockett Groves, Inc. and Crockett's Wholesale Nursery) encompassed citrus farming, row crop farming, palm tree farming, and wholesale nursery growing of containerized citrus trees, ornamental plants, tropical nursery plants, and landscaping plants. As Stan's "back yard", this is where he spent most of his time - out in the nursery propagating and growing plants, citrus trees, and palm trees. Stan's understanding of plants and how they grow, especially in a landscape environment, has been a lifelong passion and pursuit.
Stan has been working in the landscaping business since before his college days (Plant & Soil Science 1985, Texas A&I Kingsville). From 1999 to the present, he has been the owner of Bayview Farms Landscaping & Irrigation in the Lower Rio Grande Valley. Bayview Farms designed and built landscape projects from South Padre Island, to Laredo, to Corpus Christi, training, employing, and maintaining a staff of 16 to 20 people throughout the years.
In 2011 he was offered the opportunity to work as the Landscape Director for Schlitterbahn Design Group in New Braunfels, Texas. Being that both of his children were all grown up and living in the Central Texas area, Stan and his wife Annette accepted the offer and challenge. With this new contract, Stan has had the opportunity to plan and direct construction of the river walls along the Comal River, the palm tree thatched cabanas, the bridges below the Warnecke Pavilion, the green roofing atop the Tree Hauses, to plan and setup a greenhouse growing program, and to oversee and train the grounds maintenance crew in both drip irrigation installation and landscape installation.
