Who we are...
landscape architecture, design and build
family owned and operated since 1953
Stacey Nash and Jurate Hayes(picture: Lehigh Valley Magazine 2019)
Our company was founded by William & Birute Ziogas. As a trained agronomist from Lithuania, William established Parkland Nurseries as a retail garden horticulture center and thriving landscape bushiness. Later, Jurate, one of the first women to practice Landscape Architecture mid 1960's, created relationships with local builders, and moved the company further into the landscape, design and build company it is known for today. As we see our environment shifting, we can only adhere to solid land ethic principals. Stacey Nash, 3rd generation, has high hopes to provide sound ecologic and functional landscapes to our customers. This will be achieved through education, current design and sustainable implementation.
