Thomas, I enjoy your comments in the lounge....hang in there.

I am also a conservative non-republican , non-any political fact politics is the problem I think....that's why I dumped ASLA about 20 years ago.....and they are bad at it ...where are they now? how could they allow fla or any state even hint at decertification???... 

I come from older school where we were taught how to think, not what to think...

I see you think for yourself also...I respect that and wanted yiu to know....

There is an event in Chicago, I think it is tomorrow. This is the firm I work with when doing green roofs. Ask for Charlie, Jane or Melissa and tell them that you are a friend of mine.

Thanks for reaching out and I appreciate the nice comment.

Yes, some time ago... perhaps 4, maybe 5 years ago I did work for Mark Scott, but only for 9 months to a year. It seems like a blur to me because I was working more than full time on my own projects at the time and then full time for him as well. Looking back I am not really sure how I handle anywhere from 8-16 projects for my company, and then handling Mark's projects (Mark would do the Concept Plan's, then I would take it from there...) in addition.

How long ago did you work for Mark? It would be interesting to compare stories.

Your right, Garrett is a good guy and his company does great work. We have worked on quite a few projects together over the years and I do my best to recommend Urban Landscape to my clients.

It's a small world. Let's keep in touch. Take care.

Hey Tom! Work is going well, I am learning a lot and that is what matters the most to office is feeling the economic hardship, so I am living one day at a time! Are you still in CA? Do you know what you are going to do or are you exploring all alleys?

Hello Thomas my fellow californian,

I was born in Upland, CA. it's like a 30 min drive from L.A.

Anyway I know with the current international economic situation things have been slow, but I hope all is well with you. I read that you are a job seeker, if you still are and considering working in Saudi Arabia, please don’t hesitate to send me your resume and portfolio, I have to expand my team of landscape architects and I'm looking for new talented people. My email is ( I’ll tell you more about the situation here if you are interested.

Best Regards,

Ammar Sabban

That was sweet of u to say - thanks

just so u know ive done a lot free over the years while working at other stuff and am only now trying to help LAs for money - maybe. We have lots of supposed eco towns on the cards here and while i'll design a plant trough for an elf if they pay me i'll try to get in on those big projects to try to make a mark or stop folk making some error or other, or just add my verve generally.

I haven't necessarily heard of anything. If you changed paths, what would you consider going into? I'd stick with it though. If I hear of anything, I'll surely let you know.

Is it time for Landscape Architects to step into the spotlight?

Throughout history—with the exception of the great Olmsted, of course—it seems that landscape architects seldom find their way into the design spotlight. Lurking in the shadows of a project's sources, the portion of folks…
