Ainslie O’Neil
Ivy Street Design
For the most part my firm offers comprehensive design services with a more hardscape bent, but I’m hoping to delve more into the environmentally conscious market. I hold a BFA Architecture+Design (2012) and a PDC certificate from Sowing Solutions (2012), with 3.5 years practical experience in landscape architecture with an award-winning firm. It is also worth noting that my hourly rate is $85/hr.Additionally,  if anyone that is seeking comprehensive construction documentation or technical design services, don’t hesitate to send them my way.
