Donohoe Design is seeking an experienced Landscape Architect for full-time or contract work. We’re looking for an individual who is resourceful, inquisitive, conscientious, driven and personable. We want someone who is passionate about what they do and who prides themselves on being a creative problem-solver.
 
For a decade, Donohoe Design has been creating bespoke gardens for high-end, single-family homes throughout the Greater Vancouver area. Our focus is to develop artistic, architectural, multi-sensory landscapes that our clients can connect to in a deep and lasting way. We take the time to build trusting relationships.
