John studied metal sculpture at the Parsons School of Design in New York City, New York. He soon realized that the landscape a sculpture was exhibited in was just as important as the sculpture itself and set out with it in mind that he would create tranquil spaces suitable for relaxing and enjoying art. John took it a bit further and started creating art out of the earth itself and uses a lot of topography, natural boulders, existing timbers, and water to create space to live and entertain in. On his spare time, he enjoys skydiving and hiking.

I can highly recommended John Garrett Design for your landscaping needs. John listened to our wants, needs, and concerns and as a result the initial proposal was creative, well thought out, and within given budget. The crew showed up on time every day, were courteous, professional, and genuinely cared for the quality of their work. The finished product was beyond our expectations, and we could not be happier with the results!”
