    This is excellent. Thank you so much Ross. Garden looks fantastic and I’m glad to hear it properly reflects your design. Everyone who comes by the house and sees the transformation is floored. Thanks again….

    April 2017 My back yard needed to be completely reworked, I wanted to have a space where I could unwind after a long day, entertain friends. What I had in mind was a sanctuary of sorts, but stylish, modern and practical. What Ross did was far beyond what I expected, he completely transformed what was once a mess of a yard into a tranquil and fun place where I go to relax and have get-togethers with friends. Ross totally reworked the space with a fire pit area and pathways, installed a gorgeous pond, totally reworked the plants in the area in the way where it seems much more spacious and lush while using low water use plants. I’d recommend him in a heartbeat.

In conjunction to this we always consider the environment in desig whether that is planting palette to ensure water conservation or building shading in reference to heating and cooling to reduce engery needs.

We are licensed landscape architects. Additionally everyone in our office either has a bachelors or a masters degree in landscape architecture with some having both.

Our process always begins with a discussion with a potential new client and from that point we compile a proposal for landscape architectural design services which includes a fee proposal.

How did you get started in this business?

My love of design and the environment bought me to landscape architecture. After a conversation with a local landscape architect I completed my bachelors  and then masters degrees both in landscape architecture. 

What types of customers have you worked with?

We work with a wide range of clients from estate residential clients where we work directly with the home owner to working in a team of architects and engineers on larger projects.

Describe a recent project you are fond of.

My personal passion is working with homeowners in residential projects. In these situations getting to know the family and understanding how they live and how they would like to enjoy their new landscape and designing to that gives me great satisfaction. 

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Considering the process to design a new home environment is can be daunting, but by simply thinking of how you live and the functions and look you would like to see in your property will help begin the process. Having an understanding of this will help you find the right design professional. 

What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

Considering your desires and goals and also the fit of working with a design professional to achieve those goals I think is the most important considerations in creating a beautiful new environment.
