As a landscape architect, how does one fall in love with the landscapes in which we design? You spend a TON of time outside soaking up the nature and land we love. As a dad, how do you make sure you are a damn good one? You spend a TON of time showing your kiddo all those outdoor things you love the most. Well, Ben sure is great at both. He originally fell in love with landscape architecture because of the breadth and diversity in the profession. As a naturally curious individual, the draw of a profession that addresses planning, design, building, evaluation, and restoration was undeniably compelling.

If you hear a wee bit of Southern drawl, it’s because he is originally from Georgia and can’t seem to cleanse his palate of peaches or drawl. Love of all things outdoors… mountain biking, hiking, and climbing 14’ers brought Ben to Colorado more than 20 years ago. Since then, Ben has accumulated a vast portfolio of work in the Roaring Fork Valley and beyond. His projects have centered on the highest level of design, construction documentation, detailing, construction management, landscape design-build, and personalized client communication.

Ben is a licensed landscape architect and prides himself on excellence in his strong relationships with our clients, architects, and wide-ranging subconsultants that he works with. Connect One is thrilled to have Ben join us and we will never tire of his excellence in design, management, design-build expertise… oh and the Southern drawl, quiet sense of humor, and liters of Starbucks coffee.
