Bringing more than 50 years of professional experience to the firm, principals Alice and Bruce Eckerson have a proven track record of creating landscapes that blend harmoniously with the built and natural environments.

Eckerson Design Associates provides design services for high-end residential projects, real estate developers, non-profit, educational and religious institutions. Through the initial master-planning process the goals and needs of the Firm’s clients are organized into a coherent and aesthetically appropriate design vision. This vison is then carefully refined through the design and construction process ultimately into built form. The end results are beautiful and functional outdoor spaces that enrich the lives of those who inhabit or use them.
