Carl Kelemen, RLA, FASLA

I have chosen to join and remain in the field of Landscape Architecture because I truly believe that, with each project we do, we can make the world a better place for our children and grandchildren. I subscribe to the old Native American adage: "We do not inherit the earth; we borrow it from our grandchildren."


Carl earned an Associate Degree in Landscape Design from Temple University and a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture Degree from the State University of New York, College of Environmental Science and Forestry. He has worked for government agencies, large and small architecture, and engineering firms, and in the design-build world. He was the sole proprietor of Evergreen Landscape Associates and a founding partner of KMS Design Group, LLC. In early 2017, he joined Alta as a Principal.
