Troy Richards, RLA

I started my love of outdoors in the late 1970's designing, building and tending gardens with structures. I appreciate working with each customers' outdoor space with design-build solutions ranging from a descriptive estimate with multiple work areas to detailed three-dimensional design services. Our company is flexible with material selections and staging or phasing your proposed project. Outside of work, I'll be on the lake, river or working the yard with my family, if not at a child's track meet. Thank you for considering working with me and Landscapes by Terra, Inc.
