About Blanford Design

Dedication & Talent

Gary Blanford of Blanford DesignGary has enjoyed the landscape profession since he was a young man working on a landscape construction crew. It was this experience that led him down the path of becoming a Landscape Architect. He received his BLA from the University of Arizona in 1981.

The Landscape Architect profession provided Gary the opportunity of working overseas where he developed an environmental approach to design and construction. After returning to the United States and working as a Landscape Architect for 20 years, Gary decided to use his knowledge and experience and open Blanford Design.

Gary's insight in working on large scale environmental planning and design projects has given him a profound appreciation for the integration of home and landscape into a wonderful, enjoyable environment. Often referred to as "The Landscape Designer they would hire again", the firm's progressive approach to Landscape Architecture has produced some of Chicagoland's most beautiful and sought after designs. Gary has also been written up in the Signature Kitchen and Bath Magazine. Gary has also had his incredible outdoor kitchen design and installation work highlighted in Belgard's main website - you can read the article here. Gary even had his work featured in the Magazine "Be U Weddings" - an article which you can read by clicking here.
