Ben Young - Principal LA

Ben Young - Principal LA

With experience in gardening, the construction trades, and the arts, Ben brings a wide assortment of skills and background to each project. He believes that each garden and landscape design is best approached as a synthesis of both built/ human influenced forms and those we find in nature: without one, it is often difficult to see the other. It's the combination of both that excites and motivates.

Ben splits his time between projects in the metro NY area and the mountain west and is often seen looking for trace paper and random pencils. He holds a Bachelors Degree from Cornell University in Landscape Architecture and is a Licensed Landscape Architect in ID, MT, and CT.
