I am a registered landscape architect and urban planner free to work with churches and nonprofits in the preparation of conceptual landscape plans. I am located in central North Carolina but it has been possible to exchange enough information through the internet for me to help distant committees and groups with existing site problems or areas affected by changes such as building renovations and expansions.
Examples of recent digital graphic and design work are found below: (Click to enlarge)







Local projects began with the entry courtyard for the West Market Street United Methodist Church in downtown Greensboro, NC while employed by John V. Townsend and Associates. I later provided the master landscape plans for the Greensboro Historic Museum grounds and for medical and general office projects and nonprofit sponsored multifamily group homes and apartment complexes. Please contact me if a need arises in the initial sketch stages of a landscape design project, or for grounds renovations guidance.

This button leads to a portfolio of small scale residential designs from my private practice prior to the urban planner experience.

The residential examples are given because they illustrate small scale area designs. Focal area public gardens are often added to sites that have existed for awhile, like the residences shown, and are concerned with similar "human" scale.
Most "matured" work for office, campus, and commercial buildings would be hard to read as plans on the web (due to size reduction), but a few sample field photos are furnished below.

My Resume shows a more detailed history through mid-2012.
