There are few things in life that give Jonathan as much joy and excitement as designing landscapes. He believes that landscapes contribute socially, environmentally, and economically to the value of our daily lives. Jonathan is continually inspired by the opportunity to add these benefits to his client’s businesses and homes.
Jonathan enjoys being outside whenever possible. From exploring botanical gardens to hiking in the wilderness, he is always carefully examining his surroundings and looking for ways to allow his findings to inspire designs. Plants are particularly fascinating to Jonathan. Their forms, colors, and textures are dynamic – constantly changing the look and feel of the outdoor environment.
As a Christian business owner, Jonathan is committed to serving God through serving his clients, treating them as he would like to be treated. Jonathan is a member of University Reformed Church (URC) in East Lansing, MI. He served on URC’s New Building Team from 2011-2014, helping URC transition to a new church campus.
