Katie Benosky

Landscape Designer

Education: Purdue University – B.S. in Landscape Architecture.

Date started with SB: 2008

About:  As a high school student working at a local garden nursery, I realized my love for the outdoors, and I decided to pursue a career in landscape architecture. I have been in the landscape industry for over 20 years.  My favorite part of working with homeowners is the ability to create usable spaces that they are proud of and that are a reflection of their style.   The landscape should complement the house style and the theme should flow from the inside of the home to the outside. When I am not designing landscapes, I enjoy spending time with family, working on projects around the house and going to the gym.

Craig Alexander

About: Originally from Indiana, I was fortunate to pursue my career in the Chicago area for ten years, assisting people with identifying goals for their outdoor environment and then helping them realize those goals.  In joining an excellent Salsbery family of professionals, I draw personal fulfillment from helping people achieve unique outdoor spaces they can enjoy and be proud of.  When not designing landscapes I enjoy woodworking, working on my own landscape and spending time with my wife Emily and our boys.
