Even at the young age of eight, Steve’s neighbors were impressed with how well he maintained his family’s lawn and garden. His inherent skill for landscape design eventually took him to scenic Utah where he earned his Bachelor of Landscape Architecture but if you ask him, he will say that his greatest achievement while at Utah State University was meeting his wife.
Steve is a licensed landscape architect in the state of Illinois and served on the South Suburban Home Builders Association board of directors for six years, leading the municipal outreach committee. When working with clients, Steve takes into account the needs of both owners and end users by incorporating budget-responsive design solutions and utilizing native plantings to create functional, sustainable and beautiful spaces.
In his free time, he enjoys wood working, crafting stain glass, and bike riding.
What is your proudest accomplishment? Helping raise two fantastic children.
