Philippe Doineau, Owner, Pla

I am a Landscape Architect registered with the State of Tennessee and have practiced in the Nashville area for 20 years. I have been interested in the natural environment since my early childhood in France. My occupations and hobbies have been greatly influenced by a  passion for flora and fauna, leading naturally to the pursuit of a Bachelor’s degree in Horticulture and Landscape Design at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and a Master’s degree in Landscape Architecture at the University of Georgia, Athens.

what is landscape architecture?

Landscape Architecture is a multi-disciplinary design profession that combines art, science, horticulture, engineering, and planning to create, manage, and steward outdoor space and land. Landscape architects' skills are widely applied, from urban spaces and bike corridors to national parks and small backyards.
