Ted Benge



Ted has a passion for relationships and the natural world. Growing up in the back country of Tennessee, Ted fell in love with the flowing rivers, old oaks, and colorful landscapes of the southeast. As a site designer, Ted strives to create places that integrate human creativity and relationships with ecological processes. Ted believes design should be rooted in the unique character of a site’s individual spatial qualities, environment, history, and context. Connecting people to the natural world will always be a rewarding vocation for him.
