About the Book
Finally, we have an outdoor design book that is both inspirational and practical. The various design concepts are demonstrated using actual projects designed and built by outdoor designer Lucas Congdon of Lucas Lagoons, Inc. in Sarasota, Florida. All water features and landscapes are built using only natural materials and each job is unique. You will find ideas on every page as well as instructions for incorporating Lucas’s concepts into your own outdoor design.
I am an award winning exterior designer and the President of Lucas Lagoons Inc. I began my career working in my parent's landscaping business in Vermont almost 15 years ago. It was there I developed my natural talent for working with stone. The Vermont mountain influence can be seen in many of my exterior designs. I moved to Sarasota nine years ago, and seven years ago, I started Lucas Lagoons, Inc. with Barbara Luehring to design and build luxury outdoor living areas and lagoons in Sarasota, Florida and surrounding areas.
