Who we are - Jeff Neal Design

Jeff Neal spent over a decade at Gardens, a landscape design and build firm that helped create Austin's landscape design movement and shape its unique garden culture. In the late 90s, Jeff joined the Gardens team and apprenticed under Gardens' co-founder James David and his staff of designers and gardeners, where he refined his skills. In 2001, Jeff officially joined the design team and quickly worked his way to the position of senior designer. After twelve years of dedication and award-winning design, Jeff launched Jeff Neal Design in early 2010.

Jeff Neal brings extensive experience and thoughtfulness to each of his projects. His team is comprised of highly-skilled stone masons, carpenters, metal workers, project managers, gardeners and good ol' dirt people – many of whom he has collaborated with for nearly twelve years.
