Douglas Hoerr FASLA
Senior Partner

Doug Hoerr’s approach to design is rooted in craftsmanship, a hard-earned knowledge of the materials he uses, and an intimacy with the land on which he works. Raised on a farm in Indiana, Doug’s upbringing incubated and nurtured his love of landscape, and introduced him to beloved pass-times like beekeeping and scouring the terrain in search of arrowheads.

Although he is trained in traditional practices, Doug does not shy away from the novel, and his ever-growing receptiveness to new methods and techniques proves a constant source of inspiration and innovation for his team. Consistently referring to his trade as “painting with landscape,” Doug is passionate about artistry, and revels in the physical and tactile elements of his work, appreciating what they become when deduced to pure texture, color, and form.

As a senior partner, Doug leads both design and business with an insistence on the superlative. He has worked on projects all over the world across nearly every sector of design, including institutional, commercial, corporate, civic, streetscape, and residential. He has also designed hundreds of private gardens in the United States, alone.
