Senior Landscape Designer
Michael graduated from Eastern Kentucky University in 1986. He has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Technical Horticulture with an emphasis in Landscape Design and a Minor in Business. Michael has 30+ years of experience in the landscape industry and has managed projects in residential design and installation. He has overseen planting designs that include patios, wall, pools, water features, covered structures, carpentry, landscaping, irrigation, container garden design and landscape lighting. Michael has also worked during this time frame with landscape crews regarding maintenance and aftercare.
Michael's interest in gardening and garden design came early in life, specifically during his time spent in the Panama Canal Zone as a young boy. His primary design emphasis focuses on integrating the client's specific interests into a well-planned and aesthetically pleasing outdoor living space. "Gardens spaces are intended to be beautiful yet functional". Michael believes a well-planned space should consider the space to be transformed, type of garden (formal or informal) and the maintenance needs associated with the type of garden to be planned. The end result is a garden that is at balance with the homeowner's lifestyle and serves their interests and willingness for specific and ongoing care. Michael's design aesthetic leans more towards the informal and more naturalistic approach while also appreciating and enjoying formal garden design as well.
