Our Team

Our landscape architecture team works collaboratively as a design studio to provide every project and client with personalized attention and innovative design solutions. No two projects are the same, and we take pride in tailoring our approach to meet the unique needs and aspirations of each client. Our team includes experts in a variety of fields, such as land planning, horticulture, and construction, who collaborate closely to ensure that every aspect of a project is carefully considered and integrated into a cohesive design. We strive to create sustainable, functional, and beautiful outdoor spaces and developments that reflect our clients' values and enhance the surrounding environment. By working collaboratively and leveraging our diverse expertise, we are able to deliver exceptional results that exceed our clients' expectations.

We curate sustainable landscapes that cater to our clients needs now and responsibly into the future, while maintaining a high aesthetic standard and sense of enjoyment.

This is achieved through the implementation of sustainable design practices and environmentally sensitive strategies we call Smartscaping™. We consider every aspect of a project's sustainability, from the origin of plants and materials, shipping distances, to the health of soil, and the lifespan of design materials including their eventual end point through compost, recycling, and reuse. As a result, these sustainable landscapes sequester carbon, clean the air and water, increase energy efficiency, restore habitats, and create value through significant economic, social and environmental benefits.

Every project we undertake incorporates these values, techniques, and goals. This results in our Team Members enjoying the satisfaction of working with our Clients to create landscapes that will stand the test of time and climate change, and our Clients’ feeling gratified about living and doing business in the mountain west.
