Landscape Architect Steve Martino, FASLA, has earned a national reputation for consistent design excellence in landscape architecture. Steve’s pioneering work with native plant material and the development of a desert derived design aesthetic is widely recognized. A recurring theme of his professional work has been the dramatic juxtaposition of man-made elements with ecological processes.
