Our Projects

Along with our full time team of associates we employ associate landscape architects with Master of Landscape Architecture degrees. Our construction teams include carpenters, masons, and a horticulturalist.  We maintain a five acre holding nursery, storage yard and large modern wood and metal shop. Our facilities and skills allow our services to extend beyond plantings and basic hardscape. We can create detailed trellises, patios, decks, and fences- elements that will carry the design even in the winter.

Our Team

Reid Hollowell

Reid Hollowell was born on the seat of a skid loader-okay, not really, but he has been working along side his father since he was old enough to walk. Reid’s specialty as one client stated is “Michaelangelo with a skid loader!”  A graduate of Kalamazoo College, Reid earned degrees in Economics and Fine Art. His hobbies are antique micro-car restoration and the study of marine ecosystems.

John Hollowell

John Hollowell is our principal landscape architect. All design work is reviewed and often drawn by him.  A graduate of Michigan State University, John Hollowell is licensed landscape architect and builder. John has been a guest speaker and critic for Michigan State University, University of Michigan, Lawrence Institute of Technology, andMatthaei Botanical Gardens.

Patrick Schrock

Pat Schrock is always working. He’s spent his daily 8-4 here for about 8 years. Around here his specialties are  custom carpentry and stone patios.  In his spare time he operates a private recording studio, fixes music equipment, and renovates his house. Anyone that’s been near Pat on a job could guess his musical inclinations, as he’s often found whistling while he works.  Pat has a degree from U of M, Ann Arbor in Sound Engineering.

Todd Herbst

Todd Herbst has worked for JH&A for 7 years. It’s hard to narrow down what Todd’s ‘specialty’ would be -as he does a lot of the dirty work. Although he does it all with a smile, we think his specialties are sprinkler systems and masonry. Todd graduated from from Western Michigan University with degrees in Enviromental Studies & Business and completed an environmental (SCA) internship in Colorado. He spends his spare time wrenching on old motorcycles and working with various sustainable environment programs. Todd is a new father of twins!

Jack Tamm


Enjoys motorcycles, being in the outdoors and last year gathered over 500 morel mushrooms in the spring!


Likes snowboarding, tuning and modifying cars, and tending to his hobby farm.
