Tim Peterson


“Having worked on both the construction and project management sides, I design at a practical level: understanding what can be built and how long it will take; forecasting budgets and preparing accurate cost estimates; and building strong relationships with clients, consultant teams and contractors.”

Tim Peterson, FASLA, is a landscape architect who specializes in design control and construction phase services, working closely with the client and contractors from concept phase through final punch-list inspections. Over an influential 39-year professional career, Tim has made significant contributions to the design realm of built works in the United States and abroad. His body of work has garnered dozens of design awards from the ASLA, APA, and AIA and has elevated the quality of life throughout the Houston region by providing critical open space to diverse users in important civic spaces such as Buffalo Bayou Park and Hermann Park Reflection Pool and numerous award winning master planned communities.  Tim’s strength lies in his ability to translate innovative design ideas and carry them through design documentation while working alongside contractors to realize the design’s fullest built potential. Through Tim’s expertise in landscape architecture, construction, and project realization, he guides designs from inception with a focus on ensuring a beautifully crafted project that is both buildable and on-budget.


Advances in materials and craftsmanship; design with durability and long-term maintenance as guiding forces; getting  contractors to perform at their highest level and to take a personal interest and pride in their workmanship.
