ABOUT THE OWNER- I started out in what would eventually be my present career in Landscape Design
at a combined High school/technical school where I was introduced to architectural and mechanical
drafting. I then attended college at New York Institute of Technology and selected my major in their Architectural/Building
Program. I liked certain aspects of the program, but, as fate would have it at that young age, I was
diverted to other design endeavors that let me get my hands in the dirt "right now" so to speak.
In New York I worked for large regional
wholesale floral distributors, then moved on to working for a large family run chain of retail floral/nursery,
plant shops where I gained some knowledge of plant materials and flowers. I then moved out to Los Angeles and worked
for a few select floral design studios, two of them being "Zen" at the Bel Air Country Club/Hotel and
"Jardineire Design Studio" in Brentwood.
I eventually opened my own plant(exterior) & plant(interior)maintenance
and floral design shop in West Hollywood. After receiving and successfully performing an increasing number of
requests from clients to design they're plant/flower gardens and draw concepts for hardscape structures and water features,
I decided it was time to apply for my Landscape Contractors License. It combined my two great passions, structural design, combined
with trees, plants and flowers. It gave me the structure of "hardscape" which I enjoyed in the "Architectural
Program" at New York Tech, and the natural beauty of "natures creations" which I also loved while being
employed by the Plant/Nursery Chain in New York. Most importantly, it also allowed me to build and install all
my designs. The larger and increasing number of requests from clients flowing in on the horizon made
this the next logical step.
This is so important..... Here
it is again!
All successful landscape design installation begins with a
complete plan to work from. Plant materials, hardscape, structures and all the inner workings must come into
play, installing it properly requires a "master plan" to work from. My emphasis on a detailed design, covering all
your choices of finishes, trim work and accessories are all a requirement to have a satisfactory outcome. If needed, I
like to spend the extra time and effort at the design stage for the working out of any potential problems
I feel we may later encounter.
