We are artists by nature with our medium being the envisioning and design of unique gardens with you. The magic of each of our gardens comes alive through the ongoing orchestration of its creative unfolding.
We begin by listening to you, and then we continually strive both to recognize and procure the most of your site’s hidden opportunities right through the process of construction. Working co-creatively with both you, our client, and the contractors as well as the soul of the land, we hope to fulfill each site’s true potential and to manifest the restful and joyous spaces that can truly bring a garden to life for you. We rejoice in knowing that our work can become a bridge between yourselves and nature, herself.
Anchoring Altgelt and Associates is registered Landscape Architect, Tom Altgelt. For almost four decades, Tom has been orchestrating the envisioning, design and construction of spectacular gardens and landscapes. His creativity and willingness to push the boundaries of design have resulted in unique and dramatic garden spaces. A strong believer in the co-creative design process, he engages deeply with both his clients, coworkers, and the various contractors, so that the end result truly is a masterpiece. He has brought his inspirations to a wide range of projects, from intimate backyard gardens and large estates, to the international work such as the ‘New Government Center of Saudi Arabia’ and the ‘Garden of Nations’ in Stuttgart, Germany.
Tom enjoys lecturing on topics such as the ‘Art of Garden Design’ and ‘ReCognizing Water as the Element of Life’. He takes pleasure in hiking in the spectacular Rocky Mountains and foothills with his wife, as well as exploring the soulful and spiritual relatedness of nature and humanity. This is the foundation of Tom’s understanding of the archetype of the garden and the need to work co-creatively with the uniqueness of property, as well as all the great people for whom and with whom we create our inspirational landscapes.
