For the past 14 years Tracy has been working in residential landscape design and construction. She co-owned a design/ build landscape construction company in Mount Shasta, California before returning to the Rogue Valley five years ago. She has worked in local landscape architecture offices as a designer, draftsman, and project supervisor. Since joining Sage Hill she works with clients to envision their landscapes, generate plans, and oversee implementation in the field. “My approach is to listen to client needs, respond to the site, and work in collaboration to achieve engaging outdoor spaces. I stay focused on practical solutions to issues of scale, proportion, and circulation and use plants and hardscape elements to bring atmosphere and vitality to the landscape.”
