This letter is intended as a professional recommendation for David Ries, registered Landscape Architect. For the past 13 years, I have worked closely with David on a myriad of design projects. I have been constantly impressed with his professionalism, performance and knowledge. In all aspects of his work, David has demonstrated remarkable skill and organizational abilities. I have known David to be an excellent manager of projects, budgets and relationships with all stakeholders on a project, both within and outside of our office. David is one of the most efficient and dedicated designers that I have worked with. He is constantly looking to improve both our design work and processes. Throughout the years, David has obtained and demonstrated the skills needed to be at the top of the field as a Landscape Architect. David understands worldclass work and what it takes to make it happen. On the most complex projects, he is able to prepare outstanding design work, provide illustrative graphics using many electronic platforms, develop outstanding construction documents and specifications, assemble cost estimates and schedules, provide succinctly written narratives documenting meetings, and work with contractors in the field.

Story: The master plan focused on reinventing the 280acre site from a highly manicured and irrigated landscape to a sustainable site, utilizing native plants and prairie, and expanding the existing ponds to create natural habitats for flora and fauna. Incorporated throughout the proposed site is an extensive trail network and a series of “outdoor rooms” that can be utilized during clement weather.

Story: As part of the Corporate Headquarters Master Plan,    the Southeast Prairie project reimagined 17 acres of formerly maintained and irrigated turf to a matrix of native prairie, trees and shrubs. Over 1,700 trees were planted throughout the site amidst a 1/2 mile paved trail that meanders in and out of forested and prairie areas. Approximately 3.5 million gallons of water are saved by eliminating the need to irrigate the turf.

The vicinity of downtown Perrysburg has a wealth of cultural, natural and historical attractions that, if connected more effectively, can become a destination magnet for regional tourism. Trails criss-cross the area. The 8 mile long Towpath Trail is a remnant of the original trail used to pull barges on the Miami-Erie Canal. Connecting this trail across the river to the Perrysburg side with a more pedestrian and bike-friendly crossing could provide an excellent way of linking the Perrysburg Riverfront to this well-used trail. The 4600 mile long North Country Trail passes through the Oak Openings Preserve Metropark only 14 miles west of Perrysburg.
