(Sarasota FL) While not new to the Landscape Architecture scene in Sarasota/Manatee/Charlotte counties, Dennis A. Barth, a Florida Registered Landscape Architect opened his local home-based studio on April 27, 2015. His design work includes projects as far north as Bradenton River to as far south as Fort Myers and has been published in several luxury home magazines since 2006. He has design experience with golf course/condo/residential communities, small hotels, luxury waterfront homes, ALF’s, community parks and commercial projects.
Today, he focuses on working with clients that truly appreciate captivating design, natural outdoor experiences and unique landscapes scaled to their budget and needs. His local projects encompass many architectural styles,
including: Florida Cottage, Mediterranean, Modern Coastal, Mid-Century Modern, Transitional and British West Indies. His current niche of luxury waterfront homes in Sarasota and the barrier islands plans to expand to local community-based projects.
Dennis is a third-generation Barth - the grandson of the first pressman for the Sarasota Herald Tribune, Charles A. Barth, and son of Dewey N. Barth, who spent his entire career as a pressman for the same paper. His mother, Carol J. Barth, an early member of the Sarasota Sailor Circus, passed on her love of nature and gardening to her son. By his late twenties, Dennis’ path was certain - he attended the University of Florida to earn a Landscape Architecture degree and began his career with a local Sarasota design/build firm. Nearly ten years later, he moved to a Venice firm as a senior landscape architect which provided design, build and maintenance services.
During those years, Dennis cultivated strong relationships with local builders, architects, interior designers and subcontractors, while planning to start his own firm. Nearly 25 years later, he FINALLY took the leap and now enjoys working with his own clients, offering design, management and consulting services. The dream came later than expected and not without sacrifice, but it’s been gratifying to him. As one client’s recent Houzz.com review states, “...In addition to his great design work, Dennis is a pleasure to work with. He is one of the nicest people you will ever meet.”
Now celebrating five years, Dennis’ and his wife, Annette, a former Creative Director for a Florida-based retail chain, run the studio together. They employee one CAD tech and outsource overflow work. It’s their dream to continue growing the residential and community-based projects through networking opportunities in a city that they love and have called home for nearly 30 years!
Our Mission: “To provide clients with a sensory landscape experience that reflects great design, complements the architecture and ensures sensitivity to the land”.
