Bruce Lissak has worked in the field of landscape architecture and design for more than 15 years. His love of nature prompted a career change from insurance to landscape architecture in the early 1990s, when he decided to pursue a new path that would integrate his design skills and passion for plants.His work through the years has included custom homes, city parks, urban spaces and residential landscapes, with a sensitivity to various architectural styles. These projects have provided Bruce with a strong foundation in all phases of design, from site analysis and conceptual drawings to landscape installation.Bruce's desire is to bring to fruition his clients' visions, first through discussions, and then through the complete design process. He is particularly sensitive to water conservation measures and has extensive knowledge on drought-tolerant plants and California natives. He is also passionate about creating sustainable landscapes that conserve resources and maintenance and reduce organic waste.
