Meet the Team


Scott Taft

Founder and Chief Designer

Scott graduated from Cornell University in 2003 with a Bachelor in Landscape Architecture and a concentration in both Horticulture and Urban Planning.

Since graduating, and prior to founding Parick Design, LLC, Scott had worked in small boutique design firms in Ridgefield, Connecticut, Georgetown in Washington, D.C. and a large scale civil engineering firm in Lanham, Maryland. 

Scott's area of specialization is in single family residential design-build work with a focus on visually dynamic, sustainable landscapes, outdoor environments, interior plantings and seasonal decor. 

His love of plants started as a toddler when he helped his grandfather in the garden. As a child, Scott's room was filled with plants and adding to his collection was always his primary gift request for birthdays and holidays. He was actively involved in garden clubs throughout his adolescent years.
