who we are

We are a full-service Landscape Architecture and Build/Project Management firm specializing in the design and installation of ecologically literate and architecturally integrated landscapes.

We are passionate about design, ecology and relationships. The relationship between architecture and landscape and how they fit into the greater ecology they sit within. The relationship with our clients, the land we work with, and the relationships among our staff, community and peers.

We work within a design process that allows for us to provide creative and practical expertise while welcoming client input along the way. Please take a look at our design process for further detail.

what we do

First and foremost, we listen.

As a full-service Landscape Architecture and Build/Project Management firm, listening is one of the most important aspects of our work. We listen to our clients, to our team members, and we listen to the land. It is from this the flow of information stems. Our team is full of passionate and creative people and we love sharing our ideas, expertise, and opinions to ensure that we design and build a landscape that meets your needs and desires while sitting harmoniously in its relationship with the architecture and the land. To do this, we first need to listen.

With both gardens, Elder Creek has demonstrated unique artistry, an impressive knowledge of native plants and the ecology of each area as well as being extremely reliable." Susan and Bill Daniel, Santa Rosa, CA

"Rick translated our ideas for a drought tolerant yard into a living masterpiece, with visual interest and lots of flowers, bees and butterflies. He quickly earned our trust and respect during the design process. It was truly a pleasure to work with Rick and his team." Tammy, Chet and Kevin Amborn
