Tom Auer, ASLA

Landscape Designer/Owner

biorev2As a graduate of Purdue University with a degree in Landscape Architecture, I have 20 years of experience as an award-winning Landscape Designer and Construction Manager. Working in collaboration with home and business owners on projects ranging from small garden plots to multi-million dollar master plans has always been a rewarding journey for me. My love of design, skills in 3D computer graphics and photo-realistic presentation allow me to illustrate a design concept for clients that ensures a comfort level in the decision making process. My passion is to make the design process fun and exciting. I believe it is my job to listen, learn and then assist in the creation of a beautiful outdoor/indoor space.
