Gary S. Odegard apprenticed with well- known Northwest landscape designer, R. David Adams in the early 1970's, working on projects featured in Architectural Digest and other notable publications. Here he met his wife, interior designer, Shelley Odegard and together, they traveled throughout Europe studying landscape design, art and architecture with particular focus on French, English and Italian gardens.
Gary S. Odegard Landscape Design opened in 1976, after completing a large project for the Nordstrom stores.
Gary and Shelley have 3 children who attended Mercer Island schools: Bryan, who is in sales in Seattle and father Stellan and our newest member of the family Gunnar (1). Emily, who is a tutor, soccer coach, lacross coach, Younglife leader and mother to Tucker (7) and Bennett (5) Wesley (3) and our newest addition to the family Finn.
Our youngest son Taylor returned from USC and works in the commercial real estate industry and owner of two software companies.
Landscape design, beautiful homes, travel and close family create the fabric of Odegard Landscape Design. We look forward to helping you design and install your garden picture.
