Jon Raney

ASLA, Landscape Designer

Jon, a University of Arkansas graduate and born and raised in Arkansas, is thrilled to join the EDG team after 10+ years of working in Dallas for an award-winning design/build boutique firm. A constant source of design inspiration are the Central Arkansas farmscapes he worked as a young man. He interprets parceled acreage and neat crop rows as broad strokes of color, texture and repetition in his designs. Native mass plantings, naturalistic hand-cut masonry, and strong, simple geometric forms define his work. Jon has a great respect for the land and a deep love of construction. He believes in honesty, preservation, sustainability, authentic relationship-building and looks forward to enhancing the ‘Natural’ state through truly connected site design. Jon lives in an 1885 Victorian cottage in Rogers with his wife, two sons and a goofy airedale terrier. He enjoys bass fishing, mountain biking, kayaking, camping and live music in his free time.
