With over 20 years of experience in projects around the country, Mark has been involved in an array of landscape developments including transportation improvements, educational facilities, corporate campuses, and athletic facilities.  He provides a comprehensive range of design and construction management services to our clients.  His background in civil engineering and diverse experience gives him the ability to apply a wide variety of technologies in the industry, including everything from paving systems and walls to irrigation systems, sports fields, green roofs, and storm water bioswale systems.  His interest in water quality and sustainable design led him to become accredited as a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) professional.  Mark has several leadership roles in his local church and enjoys playing (and watching) sports and working with horses on a small farm with his wife, Shonda, and his two teenaged sons.
