Service Description

I proudly offer Planning and Landscape Architecture Design and Drafting Services to builders and industry professionals that are in need of assistance. Design is my passion and communication with clients and fellow professionals is my strong suit. I prefer to design from the ground up, but I can also lend a critical eye toward the designs of others. For projects big and small, I can quickly recognize conflicts and inefficiencies in a design and excel at finding the most efficient and effective solutions.

I have experience in master planning for land in excess of 1,000 acres, smaller infill properties and individual homes. My experience includes planning and landscape designs for all types of residences (single family, multi-family, apartments & condominiums) as well as commercial and municipal sites, parks, golf courses and recreational facilities. I can take design ideas straight to the computer, but often find simple sketch concept solutions are often more efficiently hand drawn, scanned and inserted into a CAD base image - setting the project in the right direction before committing to a larger investment of time and money.

Areas of Expertise include:
Site Inventory and Analysis
Strategy and Program Development
Land Use Planning
Master Planning
Concept Development
Feasibility/Site Capacity Studies
Site Design
Subdivision Design
Park and Recreational facilities planning
Commercial / Institutional Site Planning
Landscape Design / Planting Plans
