We design, build and manage landscape projects; bringing concepts and ideas to reality. We are a diverse team, and we bring a wide range of experiences and skills to every project.  

Jesse Young, founder and president of Landwise, launched the company in 2009 literally from the ground up. Since that time he has steadily been building a reputation for Landwise as a premier Design / Build company based in Denver, Colorado.

Mr. Young began his career in traditional masonry construction 20 years ago under the direction of renowned landscape designer and mason Charles Seha.

After completing his undergraduate degree at Colorado State University he went on to complete a Master’s Degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of Colorado Denver in 2003. Following graduation he worked for five years as a staff landscape architect at Sage Design Group, a site planning and landscape architectural firm in Denver.

In 2009 Mr. Young culminated his design and construction experience by founding Landwise, with the intention of creating a company that provides start to finish services of the highest quality, integrity, and craft.


Hunter White received his Bachelor of Science in Horticulture and Landscape Design from Montana State University. After receiving his degree, he moved to Chicago where he was an operations manager for the landscape firm of Brickman for three years. During his time in Chicago, Hunter developed an interest in downtown park and plaza spaces in dense urban environments.

Hunter decided to further his studies at the University of Colorado Denver, earning a Master’s of Landscape Architecture degree. During his time at CU Denver, Hunter was the president of the student chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects, through which he met Landwise owner Jesse Young. The design/build concept appealed to Hunter, so he jumped on board with Jesse in May 2014. Hunter continues to volunteer for ASLA Colorado as the representative to the GreenCO Legislative Committee..

Brian Willer takes care of Landwise’s masonry and hardscape needs. If it has stone, brick, concrete, or tile, Brian is the guy! Brian got his start in masonry in California working as an apprentice to two expert masons from England. Brian honed his skills during his nine years as an apprentice, creating a diverse portfolio of projects, including a bathtub with a fireplace at the end. Always wanting to live in the mountains, Brian ventured to Colorado and began working with Jesse in 2010.
