In 1974, a young woman began cutting grass, on her own, in order to pay for college. She realized, during that time, that working with plants, colors, configurations, and people, was something that she really loved.
So sparked Andrea Lockett’s interest in starting her own Landscape/Design company; where she could share her knowledge, and good nature, with devoted customers. She has, and always will, feel that a garden is a reflection of 'self', an extension of the home, and a place where one can use different elements to get across a particular theme. These ideals run through The Landscape Design Center today, and you can see it in each and every project designed and built by their crews.
In 1979 Tom Lockett married Andrea and he joined the staff at The Landscape Design Center. Tom had extensive knowledge of grading, concrete, and bricklaying, so he brought those aspects to the company. So, with Andreas plant and business knowledge, and Tom’s knowledge of grading and hardscapes, they were able to incorporate all the components of a Full Service Landscape Design/Build Company.
Then in 1996 Andrea and Tom's daughter, Ana, came to work for the company as a draftsman. By 2003, Ana was designing and selling landscapes. In 2004, she earned a degree in Landscape Management and Design from The University for Maryland. Since then Ana has built her cliental base and gained extensive knowledge in Hardscape, Drainage, Irrigation and Lighting. She also takes care of the company's Advertising.
Andrea and Ana are currently the two designers on staff. They both design with their own unique styles, but both have the same focus; to create an innovatively beautiful design for each and every one of their clients.
