"Very clean and sophisticated design. I am very curious how you detail the large expansion joints in the concrete paving - if you do not mind sharing?"

About Us

David Thorne Landscape Architect is a full-service landscape architecture firm, established by David Thorne in 1983, specializing in custom residential design.

Our Mission

Inspired by the house architecture and the inherent character of the site we design outside spaces that transition seamlessly between interior and exterior space, between structure and land forms. We aim to create a landscape that is so closely integrated with the home and its environment that it appears as though it has always existed. We account for the microclimate and topography of each site in our design process as we strive to blend the landscape into the greater region. We work skillfully in many design styles, from traditional to contemporary and from native plantings to the exotic. Each project is as unique as the homeowner behind the project.

We work closely with each client and their house architect, contractors, and other design professionals to translate their goals and desires into a landscape plan that transcends the separate design elements to express the personality of the client and intent of their lifestyle.

Green Design

We offer our clients custom design services that integrate ecologically appropriate options into a timeless, functional, and highly enjoyable landscape. For us, being “green” extends beyond designing a water-wise garden. Making conscious materials choices, employing site-appropriate grading and planting practices, maintaining regional site identity, and fostering soil health are just some of the important aspects we consider.
