A passionate artist and visionary, Bob's love of the outdoors began while he was a boy on the shores of the Chester River. It led him across the United States and Europe to understand the relationship between landscape design and the natural world. His travels and mentors always pointed him to the relationship between planet and people, leading him to develop his motto: "Planet People Beauty."
For decades Bob managed men, machines and materials to successfully execute swimming pool installations and landscape development for large residential estates. He paid keen attention to the details of small business management. After graduating with a business degree from John Brown University, and studying design at University of Maryland, Bob recognized that there was more to learn outside the classroom. He formed mentor relationships with titans of the landscape industry to expand his knowledge of vital landscape architectural elements on a finer level.
Training from the following mentors fueled Bob's pursuit of the relationship between planet and people: Gary Kinman

, Robin Templar-Williams
, David Tisherman
