Matthew’s enthusiasm and dedication to landscape architecture was palpable in his first letter as president to the members of the ASLA Georgia Chapter. “…landscape architects are becoming ever more respected and valued for all that we do,” said Matthew, who has spent the last 13 years pursuing excellence in landscape architecture. Matt has received multiple design awards over his career for projects ranging from large-scale multi-family residential to small-scale infill developments, streetscapes and parks.
