SENIOR LANDSCAPE DESIGNER
Farm Design LLC is looking for an experienced landscape architect or designer to join our growing team. We embrace regenerative practices to design thoughtful, biodiverse and poetic landscapes. The spaces we create contribute to feelings of restoration, connection, calm and creativity–and through this, we believe there is tremendous potential to positively impact the connection between people and the spaces they inhabit.
We are located at the eastern tip of Long Island and work on diverse projects ranging from artist retreats, historic village homes and extended family compounds–where there is a great opportunity to re-create biodiversity. We apply our skills and knowledge as landscape architects, designers, environmentalists and horticulturists to create regenerative–and yes, beautiful–landscapes that engage natural frameworks and support local ecology. For examples of our work, please visit www.farmdesignllc.com.
We are currently in the process of renaming and rebranding Farm Landscape Design to better reflect what we do, and for whom we do it. We specialize in restoration and rewilding, but also offer more traditional design services as well.
