In announcing Bob’s election as a Fellow, ASLA stated that in over 30 years as a scientist, engineer and landscape architect, Bob has made significant contributions to the profession’s knowledge of landscape soils, drainage, planting and maintenance, including quality-control procedures for blending and installing landscape soils. ASLA recognized Bob’s contributions to major landscape projects throughout the US and internationally. ASLA also noted that through his understanding and interest in large-scale landscapes, including their relationships to soils and hydrology, Bob has expanded the body of knowledge in ecosystems analysis and has used this understanding to educate others in the development of comprehensive ecological plans and in the protection of major tracts of ecologically vital land.
