Chris Otto – Principal Designer

Chris Otto, the Principal Designer of Otto's Landscaping and Lighting Contractors, LLC, founded the company in April 1994.

During his teenage years, he gained valuable experience by working and learning from local landscape design and horticulture experts, shaping his philosophy on landscape design.

According to Chris, the transition from indoor to outdoor spaces should be seamless, resembling the natural flow of true nature and its surroundings. He believes that landscaping is a living art that should harmonize with the architecture of the home. Chris emphasizes that landscaping should not be seen as a mere addition but rather as an extension of the clients' needs, personality, and vision.
