TERRIGENOUS Landscape Architecture has worked with over 200 clients on hundreds of projects over the last two decades. Most of the projects are still in place, and can be visited upon request. Each piece was designed to meet a client's unique needs and is specific to the site.

Principal Scott Wunderle builds most of the work that he draws, or oversees the construction. From time to time he also assists other design firms realize their efforts, when the projects are well conceived and require a heightened attention to detail.



Scott Wunderle, PLA, ASLA

Landscape architect

Scott grew up in Southern Vermont in a log-cabin sited between a dairy farm and a waterfall. This unique set of conditions inspired him to focus much of his life on how we go about living in and working within the Vermont landscape.

As one of four children raised by a sociologist and a philosopher his childhood was a combination of art, music, labor, family, being out-doors, projects, and travel. The importance of being true to yourself, and respectful of the surrounding Vermont Landscape was a basis for much of the way he grew up.

From 1988 to 1993, Scott attended Rhode Island School of Design and earned a Bachelor Degree in Fine Art, and a Bachelor Degree in Landscape Architecture. Following graduation he worked as a model maker for Martha Schwartz Inc., as an intern at Harvard University's Arnold Arboretum, and for Gordon Hayward Landscape Gardening and Design in Westminster, Vermont.

Scott has two teenage children Tuckerman and Angelae, or as they like to be called "Tuck" and "Ange". They are a source of pride, and a humbling reminder that all our efforts are a work in progress, requiring numerous drafts, revisions, and adjustments.
