About Us

Tim McDaniel RLA, Oregon

My early work was in export seed production which led me to seek landscape understanding as a way of life.  "The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands but in having new eyes."  Marcel Proust

Tim McDaniel brings a depth of understanding to his projects as a result of 20 years as an Agronomic field crop and soil/plant pathology/nutrient consultant, and these years involved plan designs for land reclamation and drainage systems. Tim McDaniel was an employee at Barenbrug Seed in Arnhem, The Netherlands, in his early career years.  Ultimately as a frequent visitor to Japan and working with Japanese people for their agricultural and horticultural needs, Tim McDaniel evolved into an ambassador for Japanese style design concepts in America.  Landscape expressions from many countries integrate with Pacific Hawaiian style landscapes and especially the Pacific NW style to create site design responses to the opportunities of each new site when applying design skills learned from nature.
