Patrick Hughes

Principal – Designer, LEED AP


Patrick is a contemplative landscape designer with vision and a vivid imagination. Often referred to as a "Garden Artist" his design style prioritizes aesthetics, sustainability; most certainly function, and very often fun. He likes to set plants in layers utilizing long drafts of perennials and ornamental grass to add color and motion with highlights of specimen plants for interest. A gardener at heart he understands that working with the hands is a requirement of the art. Having long been inspired by the wild of the outdoors, he seeks to solve the challenges nature presents with sustainable solutions. Patrick earned an Associate degree in Landscape Design and Horticulture from Milwaukee Area Technical College in 1996. In 2006 he earned a bachelors degree in International Studies from American University in Washington, D.C.
