About the Firm

Landscape architecture and construction come naturally to owner Steve Larsen, with close to two decades experience in the industry. With his hands-on approach, Larsen often works alongside project masons, carpenters, electricians and planting crews, as well as designing projects and managing the business.

With degrees in engineering and science, graduate work in business, landscape design and horticulture, Larsen blends the practical aspects of business with his hallmark creative vision. Before his love of the outdoors and his desire to create something tangible brought him to the industry he now claims as his own, Larsen spent most of the 1980s with a major Wall Street investment bank, analyzing and underwriting major corporate deals. A community activist as well, Larsen coaches youth sports, is involved in PTAs and community associations while attending to his personal creative outlet of more than four decades - playing great music.
