Jon LaDow: Urban embellishment designer

We're delighted to introduce you to Jon LaDow, an exterior plant design and commercial landscape expert who specializes in the San Francisco and Bay Area.

Ask clients what they think of Jon LaDow, and you’ll hear in unison that he’s a brilliant iconoclast who breaks most - if not all - plantscaping rules to deliver the industry’s most imaginative and award-winning designs. He finds joy in working with all types of clients – whether it is a boutique hotel, local or regional shopping center, or small or large commercial building. There has yet to be a location where Jon has failed to provide the perfect environment the client wishes to create. “Gaining trust and mutual support as the design process progresses followed by continued appreciation for our service are my primary goals,” adds Jon.

Jon has won over a dozen industry awards in his career for work ranging from eye-catching exterior containers with foliage and flowers to interior plants and orchids and holiday fantasies. He believes companies need to make a bold, declarative statement with their interior and exterior landscaping.

Included in his commercial design and landscape services, Jon pushes the envelope with recycling and conservation. Jon utilizes the vast variety of neighboring Bay Area nurseries and makes use of environmentally-friendly soft and hardscape materials. Jon’s environmental philosophy mirrors the country’s growing mandate to use local products across sectors and supports Ambius’ overall vision to continue to Go Green.

When he is not working - which is most of the time - Jon can be found reading thriller mysteries, cooking, traveling or dabbling in acrylic painting. Jon earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Landscape Architecture from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo.
