In the Industry Since: 1998
With Designscapes Colorado Since: 2007
"Good planting design does not follow a formula. At best, it allows you to experiment with nature and through nature to make an original statement. As in all of the arts, the best garden designers take risks. Only by taking risks can you come up with something exciting and original." - James Van Sweden
As a landscape designer I am able to create beautiful outdoor spaces that reflect my client's personality and lifestyle. I love the design-build process at Designscapes Colorado; being a part of the construction process always reveals a rewarding end result. I am originally from Ohio, and my family still owns and operates a nursery and produce farm. As a child, I always looked up to the designers at the nursery, studying their landscape creations. My passion for the green industry started here and led me to a degree in landscape design and horticulture from Colorado State University. I enjoys all aspects of landscape design from formal to modern.
