JEFFREY SMITH, RLA
Jeffrey earned his Bachelor of Science Degree in Landscape Architecture from Cal Poly in 1989. He spent his early career working for Peridian, Peter Walker and Partners, and Martha Schwartz, Ken Smith, and David Meyers. In 1992, Jeffrey launched his own design firm out of a small basement in his home in San Francisco where he focused on high concept residential designs. In 1999, the firm relocated to San Luis Obispo, CA where he continued to specialize in site specific designs for both residential and commercial projects. In 2002, Jeffrey earned his credentials as a licensed landscape architect in California and officially changed the name of his practice to Jeffrey Gordon Smith Landscape Architecture. In 2004, Jeffrey expanded and moved the practice to it's current location in Baywood Park, CA where he specializes in the unique and unusual, artistic and inspirational, and thought provoking design solutions for a wide variety of clientele.
Jeffrey's designs strive to marry architecture to site and he develops cohesive landscape plans that look and feel like they belong. He has a strong conviction toward a "regional style", encouraging the owners of his designs to celebrate where they live and create a stronger connection through their landscape.
In Jeffrey's personal life his talents and ability to design supersedes landscape architecture. He can transform an impromptu afternoon gathering into an epicurean experience. He is a full fledged foodie and his creations in the kitchen can be just as beautiful and mouth-watering as his landscapes.
