Chris Weaver

Chris Weaver is a Landscape Designer who works with his community to bring about a sustainable, shared environment that reflects the character and conscientiousness of the people in it. Chris believes that by creating compelling places, people become more engaged, and then invested in the integrity of the world they share together.

As a student, Chris worked with the National Park Service to conceptualize designs to preserve the cultural landscape at Yosemite National Park. Before pursuing landscape architecture, Chris worked to preserve and improve the environment in a different capacity, volunteering with the Willamette River Keeper to monitor and preserve the river systems of the Willamette Valley.

Chris holds a Masters of Landscape Architecture from the University of Oregon. During his master’s program, he was awarded the Oregon ASLA Student Honor Award for his design at Yosemite National Park.

Chris loves working at GreenWorks because our work is what inspired him to pursue a career in landscape architecture in the first place. He is grateful for the chance to contribute to that growing body of work.

When Chris is not creating renderings and representations of landscape designs, he can be found creating other things just for kicks and giggles. He enjoys sculpting in wood, wax and plaster, as well as playing fingerstyle guitar—but only where no one else can hear him.
