Michael Anthony's Bio:
1 Design Group, Inc. is a residential landscape design build firm, designing and delivering unique spaces that are visually appealing, functional and sustainable. Creating designs that reflects our clients' personal styles and tastes while also maximizing their investment is the key to our success. 1 Design Group educates and encourages standards for the long-term life of our projects.

Since an early age, Michael Anthony has been very passionate about landscape design. Extensive travel has afforded Michael a glimpse into the construction methods and design theory of the past and present, allowing him to integrate these concepts into local design schemes. Visiting continents like Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe and South America has given Michael the opportunity to expand his creative palate when it comes time to execute a new project. More than allowing Michael to experience different cultures, his travels have fueled his passion for landscape architecture and demonstrated limitless possibilities of outdoor living. To Michael, landscape design is like telling a story?a story that is reflective of the client's character, home and dreams. Landscape design is written in the language of nature and narrated through natural illustrations.
