Growing up in the Napa Valley, Reed developed an appreciation for Landscape Architecture at an early age. After earning his Bachelor of Landscape Architecture from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in 2015, he worked on a variety of projects throughout Napa, Sonoma and San Francisco before joining Ground Studio’s Monterey office in 2019. In his work, Reed seeks to create landscapes that reflect the nuances of human aesthetics and embody the natural beauty of their region. A philosopher at heart, Reed loves to explore contrasts of form and texture in his designs, and believes in a less is more approach to landscape, emphasizing the inherent beauty of each project’s land, materials, and craftsmanship.
