Park City, UT, US



I am a licensed Landscape Architect and member of the American Society of Landscape Architects, working from his Main Street studio in Park City.  I excel at designing modern and contemporary spaces for desert and mountain living. I received my bachelors in landscape architecture and environmental planning from Utah State University in Logan Utah. Following twelve years of experience as a landscape contractor and designer in Salt Lake City, Utah. I obtained registration as a landscape architect in the State of Utah, and founded Bockholt Landscape Architecture in Park City, Utah.

If you ask me why I am a Landscape Architect; two things: art and nature.  These two passions are what keeps me inspired;  and one thing Park City has great access to is art and nature, that’s why I set up in here.  I enjoy the unique vibe of  Salt Lake City and the picturesque nature of Park City, and all the rugged wilderness surrounding them and in between.
