I started Andy Wilson Landscape Design in the spring of 2008. While based in Salem, I work all over the region on landscape projects of all sizes - completing over 125 landscape plans since 2008! My favorite part of
AWLD is my independence. This allows me to focus completely on what's best for my client and their landscape without being tied to any
particular way of doing things.
From 2003 to 2008 I worked in Portland for Dennis’ 7 Dees, one of the largest design/build companies in Oregon, creating hundreds of large and small residential and commercial landscape plans. I also had the opportunity to see those designs installed which was a great experience that taught me how to design in a way that is both practical and cost effective.
I received my degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of Idaho. That provided me with a strong background in Computer-Aided Design (CAD), landscape graphics, large-scale master planning, plant material, surveying, landscape history and theories, creating construction documents and more. I was also able to study garden design in the hill towns of Italy – what a great experience.
My interests are not only in residential and commercial landscape design, but also in the art of golf course design. I have had the opportunity to do some preliminary course designs and would love nothing more than to one day design my own course.
My wife and I were both born and raised in Salem and we met in preschool. We currently live in South Salem with our two sons. We are both avid golfers and play as much as we can manage with young kids. One of my favorite things to do is work in my own yard, and every day I enjoy coming home to a functional and beautiful landscape. I look forward to working with you to make your own landscape something you can be proud of.
