About the Firm

Ecotone Land Design strives to improve communities' quality of life by emphasizing green, sustainable strategies and creating the detail needed to make an inspiration come to life by blending hardscape, greenscape, natural habitat, etc. into a seamless experience. Whether consulting on a green roof, urban square, neighborhood park, xeriscape requirements, non-invasive wetland species selection, or rural estate, the firm seeks to analyze a property’s ecological, aesthetic and structural qualities and develop a plan that meets the functional requirements of the owner while preserving and enhancing the natural and historic qualities that are inherent to the site.

Mark Lanier Johnson, RLA, MLA heads up the firm's effort to structure the environment for both aesthetic and functional purposes by striving to create great experiences while sustaining the beauty and ecological value of a site. Johnson has been involved with community and site planning, planting design, hardscape design and detailing in communities throughout the Southeast, since receiving his Master of Landscape Architecture degree from the University of Georgia in 1992. Johnson has also served as an adjunct faculty at the Rollins College Hamilton Holt School of Environmental Studies for courses ranging from place making, Mixed Use and Transit Oriented Development to Green Infrastructure.
