Maineville, Oh. – Thornton Landscape recently announced a new addition to the team of landscape professionals. Dan Lynch, a landscape designer with more than 26 years in the industry, joins the team as a landscape design sales manager. He will assist primarily residential customers as they plan and design their outdoor environments.
“I was pleased to be able to work with a firm that has such a great reputation. Thornton Landscape is known for its high quality of work and its unique projects,” Lynch said. “I look forward to working with our clients to help them gain focus, learn what they want to accomplish in their outdoor space, understand what they want and then prioritize their wants and needs.”
Thornton Landscape offers truly custom landscape design for both residential and commercial customers. With more than 50 years in business, the company is a consistent award winner for its landscape designs. The landscape team also includes a large number of certified landscape technicians and professionals, as accredited by the Ohio Nursery and Landscape Association (ONLA).
“My goal is to get clients – all of the decision makers – here to Thornton Landscape to show them all that we have to offer. We can go over pictures and walk around the grounds to get landscaping ideas and help them imagine the possibilities,” Lynch said. “But one of the best things we can do is help clients phase their project over time – giving them a beautiful space that is always evolving and improving.”
Lynch’s education includes design and horticulture at the University of Cincinnati as well as classes in computer-aided design and drafting at Southern Ohio College. He is a member of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers and is a Certified Landscape Technician (CLT) from the Ohio Nursery and Landscape Association (ONLA).
In his previous work in the industry, he has installed, managed and designed award-winning landscaping projects for Xavier University, Homerama homes and displays at the Fifth Third Home & Garden Show and Cincinnati Flower Show. He was a featured landscape designer in the October 2010 edition of Housetrends magazine.
“We’re excited to have his experience and knowledge on board at Thornton Landscape,” said Andy Doesburg, president of the company. “He has worked on some truly great projects. His customer focus and philosophy of guiding homeowners through the landscape design process is spot on with how we serve our clients.”
Lynch said he looks forward to meeting with clients and encourages them to get started thinking about landscaping now. The winter season is a great time to plan for projects that can break ground in the spring, he said.
“I enjoy that in this business each day is a little bit different. Each project has its own personality and each client has specific needs and wants,” he said. “I love the constant change and the constant challenges.”
