Tyler’s passion for garden design and love for the outdoors began at an early age. Frequent visits to the Huntington Library & Botanical Gardens and exploring the Arroyo Seco Park kindled his fondness for nature and the landscape. These early experiences helped foster his love for landscape architecture, ultimately leading him to earn a Master’s in Landscape Architecture from the University of Colorado. His breadth of experience includes designing gardens throughout Florida, the Caribbean, Colorado, and Utah. Outside of designing gardens, Tyler enjoys kitesurfing, running, mountain biking, and skiing.
