What others say about us
“Dave Kulsveen came to the rescue and did a masterful job taking our vision for a dog park and putting it into an awesome workable plan.” When a group of dog lovers got together and wanted to establish an off leash dog park in our community we were clueless on how to take this area of land and turn it into a park. Dave Kulsveen came to the rescue and did a masterful job taking our vision for a dog park and putting it into an awesome workable plan. He took into account that we are a non-profit organization and worked within our budget. He was flexible and incorporated our specific needs into the design plan. Dave also chose plants that are pet friendly and designs utilizing the lay of the land. His bio retention and play areas are awesome. I can’t wait to reach our financial goal and turn his landscape design into reality. He also is willing to be a part of that process. I appreciate and thank you Dave for your talent and skills in landscape design. We couldn’t have done this without you.
“David Kulsveen’s knowledge of the fine details such as water flow, local soils and nutritional needs of each plant set him apart from all of the other professional firms…”
When building our 5 acre estate with a 10,000 square foot home, we gave great care and consideration to the landscape design. Our concerns were not just finished looks but also great focus was given to water reclamation, native plants, and ease of maintenance. We accepted bids from several of the large, well-established landscape design firms in SWFL, and we also invited David Kulsveen from Landesco to do the same. Hands down, the Landesco design was the most beautiful, best use of space and much to our surprise, the most economical of all of the bids.
David Kulsveen’s knowledge of the fine details such as water flow, local soils and nutritional needs of each plant set him apart from all of the other professional firms, but his eye for design is extraordinary. He is truly a landscape visionary. Any homeowner or developer would be wise to have Landesco send David Kulsveen in for a design bid. When compared side by side with our professionals, my belief is Landesco will win you over instantly.
“The Wow Factor”- That is how I would identify the fabulous design for the future off-leash dog park for our Most Beautiful Small Town in America- Bardstown, KY. The design work of Dave Kulsveen far exceeded any expectations that I had as Executive Director of the Bourbon City Bark Park.”
– Bourbon City Bark Park I met Dave at a crucial time of development of the dog park. Our board was close to securing land from the state of Kentucky which was an abandoned softball field. I knew this space had great potential and it could meet the needs of an off-leash dog park. I also knew from visiting many dog parks in several states that an off-leash dog park could be as simple as filling in the gaps of the existing fencing and putting in a water spigot and the city of Bardstown could have a dog park. However, I also knew that we could do more and have a dog park of that our community could be proud of and that members of our community would use to its fullest extent. I however, did not have the knowledge and expertise to make this a reality- I just felt we must dream big! During my initial conversation with Dave, I shared with him the features of the off-leash dog park that I felt were essential and features that would make a dog park extraordinary. Dave was a great listener as well as a great teacher, educating me on what landscape architect really involves. There is much more to landscape architecture than making something look pretty. There were many things we had to consider in designing our park than the features we actually see. I soon learned it could be compared to building a “forever” home. Dave’s humility never allowed him to talk down to those of us uneducated in landscape design….he just broke it down so that we could easily grasp the design concepts. In the end, due to financial constraints, we asked Dave to design the park in such a way that we can construct the park in phases- with our dream park designed in a Master Plan. We have a Phase One and a Phase Two plan, which allows for flexibility. When the final Master Plan was delivered by Dave- my reaction was truly “WOW”. The design is more than I could have ever imagined. When the Bourbon City Bark Park is completed according to Dave’s design, dog lover’s as well as government officials of our community will be proud. I am certain our park will be a model regionally for the development of dog parks in other communities. And YES the Most Beautiful Small Town in America will have a most beautiful dog park, thanks to Dave Kulsveen.
