JAN SANDGREN

picture of owner

Jan’s professional emphasis is environmental restoration and protection including residential, urban and some of the wild rivers and streams on the West Coast.  Her expertise in native planting designs, wetlands creation and enhancement and bioengineering for erosion control has been successfully applied to small residential designs and to 600-acre public parks.  She has managed coastal and shoreline projects in the Northwest and Asia involving numerous government agencies, multi disciplinary teams and special interest groups.  Jan holds a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture from the University of Oregon and is LEED accredited. 

Her commitment to the urban environment and community-based efforts is demonstrated in her deep involvement with urban watershed protection and restoration, water quality and reforestation. 

“The micro scale is of equal importance in both planning and design.  It is at the intimate level where good design allows people the opportunity to relate and absorb the beauty and enlivening potential of nature.  It is where the respect for our surroundings begins.”
