David H. Tomblin, ASLA
This short and decisive statement is the backbone of David Tomblin’s Landscape Architectural practice. With a diverse background from being reared in North Alabama as an architect’s son, David has seen the Southern landscape evolve from a perspective that few of us have experienced. Difficult economic times and poor understanding of ecology have created vast landscapes of non-sustainable and ugly scarification of our region. At the same time, jewels have been created across the Southeast that remind us of the joy that the well-designed garden brings.
"In facing the growing urgency of environmental issues confronting human societies, we must do more than sustain the earth; we must heal, enhance and manage the life-sustaining processes of the planet and ensure the integrity and strength of the global landscape which connects them."
American Society of Landscape Architects Declaration on Environment and Development - January 1993
