In 1994 James Patchett founded CDF. In addition the professional team is led by three directors: 

Gerould Wilhelm, Principal Botanist/Ecologist

Tom Price, Principal Civil Engineer/Hydrologist

Jason Cooper, Principal Landscape Architect/Planner


The staff at CDF includes a diverse range of personal talents and professional education and experience. Our staff includes landscape architects, planners, environmental scientists, hydrologists, and engineers that are fueled by demanding projects. We foster a creative culture necessary to address challenging problems, to cultivate rigorous questions, and to seek creative pathways.








We are solutions oriented thinkers. Decisions are made collaboratively. This is the “Forum.”
