Will Hargrove

ASLA, PLA

Landscape Architect

I am an Alabama native and a proud product of Athens and Limestone County, Alabama, where I developed a passion for small towns and their specific needs and idiosyncrasies. My horticulture background has fostered a strong relationship with plants and flowers of all kinds (looking at you first flush of Forsythia :)).

Somewhat of a beer snob, I enjoy the finer aspects of craft beer – especially hazy IPAs and fruited sours. I am obsessed with music in all its forms and am involved in a weekly playlist with friends called the Friday Sixer. On any given day you can hear anything from Otis Redding to Dr. Dog blaring from my office (sorry office neighbors). I collect screen print and letterpress concert posters and have a collection that will rival your wildest jam-band obsessed cousin. I love to travel, especially for concerts, restaurants, and breweries. Need a music, restaurant, or beer recommendation? Ask me. If I haven’t listened to it, been to it, or had it, I’ve for sure read about it and salivated over it already. War Damn Eagle!
