Born and raised in New York City, Janice Parker grew up studying the natural and urban environment. While studying at Parsons School of Design, and with John Brookes at the Clock House School of Garden Design in England, she worked in the floral business, designing extensively for public and private events and spaces. These experiences solidified her passion for landscape design, and in 1984 she officially launched her eponymous firm, Janice Parker Landscape Architects. She chose the unique journey of gaining her landscape architecture license through independent training, practical experience and mentorship from other respected professionals in the field of design. Janice has conceptualized and directed innovative landscape architecture for national private and public clients across the United States. Her firm’s work has been featured in Architectural Digest, The New York Times, Veranda, The Wall Street Journal, Luxe Interiors + Design, The Washington Post Online and Vogue – to name a few. In 2017 Images Publishing released “Designing A Vision” which is authored by Janice and showcases the firm’s work. Under her guidance, Janice Parker Landscape Architects has been honored with multiple awards, including the 2019, 2018 and 2016 Stanford White Award for Garden Design, the 2020, 2019 and 2015 Professional Merit Award from the CTASLA, and the 2017 New England Design Hall of Fame Award. In 2019, Janice became a Member of the Board of Trustees for Bette Midler’s New York Restoration Project (NYRP), a non-profit organization dedicated to beautifying New York’s public spaces and creating a healthier environment for those who live in the most densely populated and least green neighborhoods.

What's Next

“The future is in year-round outdoor entertaining space. Create safety and comfort for your family and friends as the temperatures drop with heated furniture or cushioned seating, fire features, and luxurious throws. To get the most time you can out of every day be sure you have enough lighting for everyone to comfortably see each other and move about freely in the landscape. Portable led lanterns are the most exquisite option!”
