US-based senior landscape architect, Don Ferlow, has been named the 2011 recipient of the Distinguished Practitioner Award in Private Practice by the New York Upstate Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA).

The award recognises individuals from firms, agencies, and colleges and universities for their achievements in the profession of landscape architecture.

The awards ceremony, held by the New York Upstate Chapter of the ASLA, enables the public to see both the challenges landscape architects face in the project process and the resourceful solutions they establish.

Four decades dedicated to the profession has led Don to be heralded as a leader in landscape architecture with this esteemed award.

The Distinguished Practitioner Award acknowledges Don’s extensive experience in providing site solutions for a wide range of development. He has pioneered work in projects by incorporating stormwater runoff management design and the restoration and creation of viable wetland ecosystems within the mainstream of land development actions.

“ASLA’s award creates awareness of what it means to be a landscape architect and what the profession requires of its technicians. It also shows young and aspiring landscape architects how rewarding it can be to gear projects that are kind to the environment.” says Don.

Don joined GHD, formerly known as Stearns & Wheler more than 20 years ago and currently works out of the company’s Cazenovia office. GHD established a permanent presence in the US and 2004, and has grown to more than 700 people, across 32 offices.
