Garry

Carson

Landscape Architect/Principal

If I were a tree, I would be an aspen with its shiny white bark and leaves trembling in the slightest breeze. Like the aspen, I also look best from a distance among large groups of my own kind.

Garry has over forty years of Landscape Architectural experience, with special expertise in the areas of parks planning, urban design, sports facility design, landscape design and project management.

He has a Masters Degree in Landscape Architecture and a Bachelor of Environmental Studies (Honors) from the University of Manitoba, along with an Architectural Technology diploma from NAIT. A few of his more noteworthy and award winning assignments include: Head Smashed In Buffalo Jump (a UNESCO World heritage site); the Urban Parks Master Plan for downtown Calgary; The Canmore Nordic Centre, host site for Calgary’s 1988 Winter Olympic Games; and Ralph Klein Legacy Park in S.E. Calgary. In 1997 Garry was honoured with election to the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects College of Fellows, in recognition of his contributions to the field of Landscape Architecture.
