 Bobby Schwartz
 Bobbie Schwartz, Landscape Designer - Bobbie's Green Thumb

Work with plants as much as possible in order to gain practical knowledge - plants don't read the books and frequently perform differently than specified.  Design courses are essential for future designers but try to intern to learn the practical aspects. More information

 Mace Rosen
 Mace Rosen, Landscape Development Supervisor - Bahai World Centre - Mount Carmel Terraces

Horticulturally the Sacred Terraces Projects are exciting since they blend not only plants from nearly every continent but also blend formal and natural garden styles, extreme water conservation practices, etc. all on an incredibly steep, kilometer long mountainside. More information

 Richard Grant
 Richard Grant, Landscape Design Project Director - Mariani Landscape

We encourage our clients to imagine all the attributes that plants offer. We help them to envision the fragrance of the plant, the beauty of the blossoms and even sense the coolness from a shady overstory tree. This is why they purchase a landscape project. More information

Steve Coughlin
 Steve Coughlin, Landscape Designer - Barnes Nursery Inc.

Much of my success as a landscape professional must be credited to the efforts of Ohio State Horticulture Professors Phil Kozel and Elton Smith, who were inspirational, caring, proactive and excited about helping students. More information

Steve Stone
 Steve Stone, Landscape Designer - Nature's Green Nursery

To be successful in this business you must combine a knowledge of plant material with the right attitude and a true work ethic. I took every class the department offered. I started with greenhouse and then plant identification, followed by entomology, plant pathology and lastly an emphasis in turfgrass management. More information

Ryan Newell

My main focus is to manage the grounds of our 65-room Georgian style mansion, clubhouse, and front entrance. This entails managing turf, herbaceous plants, woody plants, roads, member parking lot, containers, and everything in between. More information
