There are few pleasures in life more satisfying to me than a hike along a stream in the forest. So much to see and learn. When I graduated from the University of Rhode Island in 1972, I had years of classroom experience in Design, plant materials, and environmental studies, but it was a pittance compared to a Northwest woodland. I did a 3 year stint with a very progressive landscape design firm back east that specialized in those “out-of-the-box” projects that formed a lot of the basis for my approach to landscape. By 1980, it was time to see where this was all leading, so Ron Miner Landscape Design and Construction was formed. Let’s face it, it was a pretty meager beginning. As time passed, the projects became more involved and challenging. But the connection to the natural world still drove my thinking, as it does today.
We try our best to bring innovative design and job site craftsmanship to all our projects. My philosophy is guided by an emphasis on the environment: the one my customers can experience at home, and the bigger one we all live in and are entrusted with each day. I believe this is the most sensible approach to the work we do. I hope you will agree.
