Born and raised in New York City, Green Echo Studio's owner, Tom Velez, bring education and experience from around the world to every project.
Tom, a twelfth generation American from a family that has spent much time working the land as farmers, foresters, and gardeners, brings experience and knowledge gained on projects completed as an apprentice and worker from the jungles of Costa Rica to the Berkshire mountains of Massachusetts. Martin received his undergraduate degree in Landscape Architecture at City College in New York City, and went on to earn his Masters in Landscape Architecture at University of East London in London, England.
Tom and Martin bring their multifaceted experience to each project, working together to skillfully blend traditional and contemporary landscaping methods. The results are stunning landscapes that are as functional as they are beautiful.
