Bio

Jeff Douglass, jdouglass@RutgersLN.com, 800-422-6008, ext. 235

Staff Member Since 2013

Education:  Clemson University (Clemson, South Carolina). I earned my Bachelors of Landscape Architecture with a minor in Horticulture in May 2012. I also studied Architecture and Urban Design in Barcelona, Spain, at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia. I am an Associate Member of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA).

Certification: Certified Nursery & Landscape Professional

Experience:  

I began designing custom landscapes at Rutgers in 2013 after briefly working in the nursery. From a young age, I can remember being inspired by the outdoor built environment which eventually led me into the design field. A love of plants and a passion to learn more about them soon followed. Prior to working at Rutgers, I was employed as an installation technician for a boutique landscape design-build firm in the picturesque mountain lakes regions of The Carolina's and Georgia. It was there I gained valuable hands-on experience in various aspects of landscape design, materials/construction, installation, and project management. This practical construction knowledge has helped me solve problems and create designs which transform a client's vision into reality.

At Rutgers, I am involved in all aspects of your project, from the initial on-site consultation and design to making sure the project is installed correctly (you may even see me with a rake). I work closely with clients and listen to their needs to make sure their project is something that they love. My portfolio includes primarily residential projects of varying scales, from small planting designs to full property master plans, including pools, planting design, patios, walls, walkways, and driveways. I have an interest in designing with natural stone and enjoy creating beautiful hardscapes which can blend seamlessly into the planting scheme and surrounding environment. When not working, you will find me fishing, watching soccer games, or talking about Clemson football.
