Who We Are
Landscape Solutions is a Nashville design build firm created when passions for organic gardening, sustainability and landscape design were fused. We are designers and contractors who engage with our clients and commit to exceeding their expectations. We are conscious of how our process, from design to maintenance, affects the environment, and we strive to reduce our impact. We love to educate our clients about the little things we can do to help them lead a more sustainable lifestyle. Our landscapes are responsive to the environment, re-generative, and contribute to the development of a healthier community. Landscape Solutions can help minimize your carbon footprint by installing a landscape that reduces carbon, cleans the air and water, increases the energy efficiency of your home and restores wildlife habitat
Jeffrey's first exposure to the industry began with his first company 'Orkin Yard Service' in his hometown of Jackson, MS. He graduated from Mississippi State University with degrees in both Landscape Architecture and Landscape Contracting and Management. After years of experience in Atlanta, Dallas, Baltimore and Nashville, he planted the seed for what has evolved into the Landscape Solutions vision for helping you live a more sustainable lifestyle. He is a LEED Accredited Professional and always tries to weave aspects of sustainability into his daily life. He recently obtained an MBA with a concentration in sustainability from Lipscomb University. He recently began a side project called Urban Hydro Project which is a hydroponic vegetable growing operation in downtown Nashville. When Jeffrey isn't sketching out our next landscape design, he can often be found teaching private workshops in a 3 D modeling program called Sketchup. On the weekends he enjoys making his own Jew brew, mountain biking, throwing the frisbee with gunner, hanging out with Bosco or exploring the outdoors.
Cliff started toning his lanky physique by landscaping at the age of 15. He worked alongside his brother Gage, providing landscape maintenance to large scale commercial projects. He attended Mississippi State University and obtained degrees in Landscape Architecture and Landscape Contracting and Management. While attending MSU, Cliff interned in the Windy City and the A.T.L. where he gained hands on practices of all facets of the green industry - from overseeing the install of annual flowers in Chicago’s city parks to installing landscapes for residents in the city of Atlanta. Upon graduation, Cliff moved to Music City and worked beside seasoned area Landscape Architects before starting Landscape Solutions. Cliff is married to his wife, best friend and soul-mate, Casey. They live with their 6 year old, four legged daughter, Laken, their spoiled yellow lab.

After graduating in 1997 from the University of Georgia, he spent a decade in the communications field, working at a public relations firm before serving as the Director of Communications at Montgomery Bell Academy for seven years.

Gunner is a seven year old first generation labradoodle. Jeffrey thought he had found the perfect dog until he later discovered first generation doodles still shed, a lot! Gunner enjoys coming to visit his dad on site to make sure all of the plants are installed properly.
