NATIVES LANDSCAPE CORPORATION was formed in 1983 and provides professional sevices in landscape architecture, landscape construction, environmental design and site planning.
These technical and specialized services are provided to a client base which prefers professional, accurate and creative design solutions integrated with the use of native and unique plant species.
NATIVES enjoys a successful history and selected gardens have been featured in Southern Living, National Gardening and American Nurseryman magazines and for exhibit on private tours.
We were recognized with a national award in 1987 at the annual Native Plant Conference in Cullowhee, North Carolina, for our innovative use of native species in a lake and conservancy management plan for The Lakes at Greenleaves in Mandeville, Louisiana.
Our work has been featured in numerous books including William R. Fontenot's Native Gardening in the South, Charlotte Seidenberg's The New Orleans Garden, The National Wildflower Research Center's Wildflower Handbook, Sally and Andy Wasowski's Gardening with Native Plants of the South and Carol Ottesen's Natural Plant Primer.
NATIVES is recognized by New Orleans' City Business Magazine as one of New Orleans "Best Places to Work".
As a founding partner with NATIVES in 1983, Stephen was the City of Mandeville's primary Landscape Architect consultant throughout the 1990's.
His contributions to the City as a designer through grant writing, grant execution, master planning, consulting and urban forestry is well-documented and helped Mandeville through the birth of its urban forestry program.
Stephen's passion for three dimensional thinking has extended into numerous golf course design and renovation projects throughout Louisiana. Most recently was the highly successful University Club renovations for The Tiger Athletic Foundation in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
