Jeffrey Charlesworth, RLA, ASLA, LEED AP

Well-grounded in the arts and sciences, Jeff customizes a landscape design to fit the client, the genius of the place, and its natural systems. His 25 years of experience have encompassed award-winning traditional, contemporary and regenerative landscapes along the East coast and in the Midwest. His design work includes home landscapes, estates, parks, school campuses, commercial landscapes and outdoor restaurants. Their scope ranges from extensive large scale master plans to small intimate garden rooms. He creates artful landscape solutions for people, garden habitats and interrelated natural systems.

Jeff has special passions for planting design and for finding ways to marry landscapes and architecture. Plantings bring an artful, living, four-season element to the landscape. A well-structured landscape unifies the built and landscape elements.

Jeff’s art passion is found also in his paintings and drawings done in the studio or plein air. His paintings are frequently seen in regional juried art shows and Delaware Valley galleries.
