Some people detest the thought of manual labor, not willing to bear the aches and fatigue that come with it. Nathan Martin is not one of those people. He welcomes the opportunity to labor with a bearhug. While growing up around the construction industry, he found an interest in the concrete pouring and finishing process. Not only curious about manmade environments, Nathan has always had a love for the great outdoors. As early involvement with programs such as 4-H and FFA sparked a deep affection for plant and animal life as a young man. That soon evolved into a desire to work in a field that involved those things, resulting in a Bachelor’s degree in Landscape Architecture with an emphasis in Horticulture, naturally.
With the appreciation Nathan possesses all that nature has to offer, it’s safe to say he has found his niche working in the world of Landscape Design. Combining his appreciation of nature, early exposures to masonry, expertise in horticulture, and physically sturdy frame, Nathan carries the components of what makes a powerful Landscape Architect.
Throughout his 34 years, including the 5 years of professional experience, Sam has enhanced a vital skill for his craft. That skill is to seek the beauty and potential in everything around him. Whether he’s knuckle deep in soil, weekend road tripping, or finding an interesting thrift piece filled with history, he has an innate desire to interact with the world around him. One significant reason he loves working in the landscape industry is that he gets the opportunity to be creatively interactive with the purest of mediums…nature.
In Sam’s case, it doesn’t just stop at having an eye for nature’s charm. He also flexes his creativity into music, with a superb sense of rhythm and a pair of drum sticks…just ask his wife. He aims to absorb as much knowledge as possible when it comes to hobbies and new activities that intrigue him. A “true novice” as he continually calls himself. When trying to estimate the possibilities of a new project, there’s not much that stands in the way of Mr. Bray when his curiosity kicks in. Couple that attitude with the arsenal of soil, design, stone and plant- life, the results are sure to be inventive and outstanding.
Everyone has heard the saying “Don’t mix business with pleasure.” However, throughout her 3 years of professional experience, Alison intentionally flips that notion on its head, creatively speaking, of course. While others think it’s wise to keep business and pleasure separate, that defining combination is the driving force of Alison’s productivity. When it comes to her process, she is a maestro at engaging with our clients and translating the ideas in their heads to feasible plans starting from paper and ink. Moreover, she loves the fact that this builds a relationship with the people she works with. Some skills in particular are home DIY projects with her husband, hanging with her rambunctious son Silas, throwing clay on her pottery wheel, or tending to her home garden.
Needless to say, the ways of sculpting her ingenuity span beyond her professional career. The beautiful thing about this is that her home-life and her work-life fuel one another. This is a powerful tandem that makes Alison the valuable and proficient artist we’re happy to have on our team.
