Who We Are
Michelle Newman - Landscape Architect, Founder and Principal
“I grew up in England and for recreation I always loved to visit gardens at country homes, manors and castles. That hobby developed into a career when in 1989 I began studying landscape architecture. My husband, also a landscape architect, and I love to constantly test new plants and experiment with new designs and ideas.”
“After beginning my career in the landscape design field working for some of the very best landscape architects in the area, I formed my own company in 2002. My vision was to create a team of talented, innovative people with the ability to creatively collaborate with our clients and personally flourish in what is often a fun environment with flexible schedules.”
“I like to oversee all of our projects personally from concept to installation and enjoy visiting former clients months after project completion to ensure the design vision we shared is still looking its best. Often because we work so closely with our clients during this process, we build lasting friendships that blossom over the years.”
Our company’s creed is simple: Surpass our clients’ expectations.
Whether designing a courtyard or a 4,000-acre estate, our enthusiastic MJN Landscape Design Studio team will immerse itself from concept to completion in order to translate your vision into an environment. By personally guiding you through what can seem like a complicated process we ensure that the journey is a pleasant experience.
