Landscape Design Architect
We at Evolution Landscape & Nursery have the top landscape architect in the State working with us. Loring Evans, ASLA, has designed hundreds of gorgeous properties both residential and commercial in locations across the Western United States. Evans has been working as a licensed landscape architect since 1980. His artful eyes take concepts and build ideas into reality. “A waterfall cannot be drawn completely on paper. Every stone has its own personality and must be considered at the time of construction. The smallest pieces can significantly impact the flow of water,” states Evans.
“I believe to create space you have to live within that space, feel the wind, listen to the sounds and take in all that surrounds you. When you are working with plants or natural stone the design can only be conceptual on paper. When the boulders arrive and the plants lay before you that is when you begin to create.”
Evans likes to surround ponds and waterfalls with woods of spruce, pine, birch, poplar and shrubs like willow, serviceberry and red and yellow twig dogwood.
His design goal is to create the appearance of natural existing ponds, falls and streams. This can be achieved by creating, for example from the Two Rivers development, springs flowing from the hillside. In areas where streets pass closer to ponds, water sculptures were created by core drilling individual sandstone boulders. The streams and pond perimeter are river cobble granite extracted from the site during pond construction.
Loring Evans is an award winning design architect and has been recognized in numerous landscape articles and magazines for his work. The passion, knowledge and experience Evans brings to his projects gives new meaning to the beautiful outdoors.
