July 29, 2020 | By rli-admin
Bram joined Roundtree as our Lead Landscape Design & Sales team member in 2018. An avid traveler and mountain backpacker, Bram takes inspiration both from nature and architecture from around the world when creating new designs. When it comes to Bram’s favorite part of his job with Roundtree, he will tell you it is his connection and relationships with our customers. His goal is to get to know you and listen; to discover the root of your landscape dreams and blend them with plants and techniques that work in our Dallas climate.
In fact, it might seem like Bram is getting a little nosy with you when you start the design process with him! But asking questions about where you grew up, your favorite places to travel, and your day to day lifestyle is crucial for Bram when it comes to creating your perfect outdoor living landscape. In fact, the overall caring and cooperative spirit of the Roundtree Landscape team is a big reason why Bram feels like he fits right in with our company.
Better understanding you – and caring about your needs - is how Bram brings your best landscape to life.
A green industry veteran, Bram has more than 44 years of hands on experience. He started his career by learning greenhouse plant production, which fueled his passion for plants and landscape design. Further study in landscape architecture and botany informed his development as a skilled designer. Bram loves creating beautiful landscapes that are also highly functional; with a keen focus on creating outdoor spaces you can enjoy all year-round.
