Hess Landscape Architects works with the industry’s top architects, interior designers, and engineers to provide clients with amazing backyards that reflect their own sophisticated styles. Founding Principal Chuck Hess achieves this by listening to every member of the design and construction team, the homeowners, as well as his own instincts. His end goal for each project is to not simply meet client expectations, but to surpass them. “We strive to craft unique spaces tailored to each client's tastes and to each site's singular needs,” says Hess.
Frequently, Hess is called upon to lead a project from concept to completion. His skilled team is proficient in directing a variety of important functions, from the production of comprehensive design development drawings to the construction of amazingly exquisite projects. “We feel very fortunate to work with the finest craftsmen and artisans, and we take great satisfaction in managing a job, either collaboratively or as the primary consultant."
Hess manages firm operations and also is lead-designer taking an active role on all projects. He has nurtured his skills for over 20 years by completing substantial residential commissions throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, New York, West Virginia, and Florida as well as internationally in places like the Bahamas. The diverse variety of scales in which Chuck has practiced landscape architecture inform his methods, enabling design consensus between dynamic, visionary analysis and holistic cogent sensibility. “We aspire to maintain the very highest standards in our industry, and to not simply meet our client's expectations, but to surpass them,” says Hess.
