OUR TEAM

Michael Kidd

Michael Kidd

Owner

Over the past two decades, Michael has had the pleasure of working in a variety of market sectors and in several states throughout the Southeast. Michael’s journey toward landscape architecture began with a curious childhood set in the picturesque countryside of southeast Louisiana. His playground included a two-hundred year old live oak with branches covering nearly an acre of land, which would later develop into an intense passion for outdoor design.

Our Design Philosophy

We understand that every project is unique and that design is a collaborative and iterative process. We have the passion to stand up for good design, the realism to know that compromise is essential for success, and the humility to admit that we don’t have all the answers.

Our goal is to create unique outdoor spaces that are:

  • Functional and inspiring
  • Sensitive to the surrounding environment
  • Elegant in their simplicity
  • Contextually appropriate
  • Consistent with construction budgets
  • Aligned with expected levels of maintenance
