Honored as one of the 12 Top Landscape Professionals in the U.S. (Total Landscape Care magazine, 2015), Mark never settles for ordinary... whether in his designs... his selection of plants and hardscapes... his award-winning installations... or his belief that water is a truly precious gift that should be conscientiously conserved and preserved for future generations.

Mark has been involved in the green industry since 1987. Mark's years of experience encompass sustainability, site water management, irrigation, landscaping, xeriscaping, hardscapes, masonry, permaculture, horticulture, arboriculture, passive and active rainwater harvesting, and more.

In 2019, Mark was awarded two prestigious International APLD Design Awards, which honor excellence in landscape design. Projects in eight different categories are judged on the basis of difficulty, craftsmanship, attention to detail and execution. Mark’s APLD recognition has continued into 2020 & 2021 with two additional awards. You can be confident that the same talent and expertise that brought Mark these highly-coveted awards will be applied to your project, ensuring your satisfaction and enjoyment for years to come.
