About Terra Luma Design


Michael is Terra Luma Design’s head Landscape Designer. He holds a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture degree from The University of British Columbia.

Michael specializes in custom exterior design, whether it be for residential or commercial clients. He founded Terra Luma Design as his design practice over 25 years ago. Prior to that, Michael was the primary Urban Designer for UBC’s Planning Department.

Michael approaches design with his clients’ personal needs in-mind first-and-foremost. Taking cues from the environment and surroundings, his goal is to always give his clients a landscape design that is a physical expression of themselves.

Michael’s forte is plant knowledge, often introducing botanical wonders previously unknown to the clients. Developing landscape designs, planting palettes, colours and textures that are representative of his clients’ uniqueness allows for the creation of sophisticated and timeless gardens.

“I have had several clients utilize Terra Luma over the years with great success. Michael has always been able to provide an initial vision from the first meeting with the client that fits with the desired goal of the project. I would not hesitate to recommend Terra Luma Design for anyone looking to find creative and elegant solutions for landscaping improvements and re-design.”​
