Mike Morris

Landscape Designer & Sustainability Passionate

My love of the outdoors began as a young child growing up in a little rural town. There, I saw soon after moving how my parents turned a 4-acre wild piece of land into a lovely garden for our newly bought home.

Soon after graduating, I traveled for a year across Europe, visiting historical gardens in France, England, and Italy.

I enjoy designing gardens that are pleasing to the eyes and ears, integrating the architecture and its colors into the project.

Elegantly decorated, calm, and harmonious gardens result from my excellent attention to detail, sensitivity to size and content, and a deliberate dedication to creating with my clients in mind.

I love eco-friendly, sustainable, and zero waste products and try to live a responsible lifestyle and work for a better planet.
