Alison Terry | Landscape Architect

Terry Design, Inc. | Landscape Architecture




Design Philosophy


Design excellence transcends styles or trends. Good design connects people to places, and that connection creates a bond between owners and their environment. Our goal is to create the best possible landscape design solution for your lifestyle and property, one that is reflective of your personality and sensitive to your home's architecture, your neighborhood, and the surrounding environment. Alison's art and architecture background enables her to visualize designs and communicate that vision to you through sketches. She especially enjoys developing landscape designs for historic and architecturally unique homes, where she can carry the overall landscape vision through to all the exterior details. Jamie's abilities in SketchUp allow her to convey design intent through computer 3-D modeling, and her volunteer work at the Huntington Library and Gardens in Pasadena advanced her knowledge in horticulture and landscape design.
