Comprehend. Collaborate. Create.

Landscape Architecture is art. And like art, it should evoke an emotional response. How does it make you feel as you walk through a space? Does it provoke a certain feeling or elicit a certain response? When I design, I begin with the ‘story’ of that space that I wish people to experience. From there, the details simply fall into place.”

Darin Farnworth Design Principal

As a Design Principal with LandCreativeInc., Darin Farnworth brings the perfect balance of creativity and expertise to every project, translating each client’s vision into thoughtful, feasible design. With more than two decades of design experience, Darin excels at visioning and executing across a wide range of projects, from master planning, international resorts, retail and office, to private estates, multi- and single-family residences. Synthesizing the philosophies that govern landscape design and architecture, Darin pays close attention to the use of form and lines, materials and textures as they relate to the overall program of a space. It’s this big picture approach that distinguishes his work and allows him to seamlessly execute across a variety of design themes, from traditional to the contemporary. This meticulous attention to detail is also a vital part of Darin’s handling of construction documentation. No matter how innovative or intricate the project, the means to build it is communicated in a clear, concise and complete set of construction documents. Darin holds a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning from Utah State University; he is a licensed Landscape Architect in the State of California.


What we believe and what we think It takes a critical balance of creative vision and experience to unite the two.

BIG DESIGN We think globally, regionally and culturally.

Drawing on 20+ years experience leading large project teams both domestically and abroad, we synthesize needs-oriented design, considering regional and local context to ensure our solutions successfully integrate with the fabric of the community. Our work is born from functionality-focused design thinking, in which our distinct creative direction and aesthetic overlay establishes a deep connection between the client’s goals, a community’s needs and its cultural influences.

We think forward.

Our expertise to identify and resolve issues before they arise, provides us with the confidence to be flexible and responsive when they do.

We believe in the art of nature and the beauty of design.

Our team aims to create inspired spaces, sanctuaries from daily life that enable us to pause, take notice, and reconnect; with the land around us, our fellow people, and with ourselves.

CREATIVE APPROACH We listen.

We take our clients’ project goals to heart, and understand the end-users’ needs. We engage in focused collaboration, encouraging client participation and providing continuous project leadership throughout.

Then we create.

From visioning to documentation to project supervision, our work is always informed by this communicative and collaborative approach.
