About Devlon Ward, ASLA

Devlon is a native of Starkville, Mississippi, where he earned a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture from Mississippi State University. He feels fortunate to be a part of HNP Landscape Architecture and the profession itself, which is a rewarding profession full of varied expertise, projects, people, and environments. Devlon is inspired by his work's ability to improve the lives and liberties of individuals, families, communities, cities, and even the world.

With this passionate outlook, Devlon aims to hone his professional land planning and sustainable design skills to create inspirational outdoor spaces for the people who inhabit them. Devlon's greatest strength is his knowledge of residential carpentry, a skill passed down from his grandfather. This valuable field knowledge informs his design concepts and documentation, ensuring the design vision is not just an idea, but an idea that can be built. When not in the office, Devlon enjoys drawing charcoal, still-life portraits, and oil painting with his wife and three daughters.
