Owen Wormser

After receiving a degree in landscape architecture in 1998, Owen Wormser founded a landscape design/build business. Since then, he has designed and built hundreds of landscapes inspired by his study of the natural world, as well as horticulture, ecology, permaculture, and organic agriculture.

Wormser’s business, Abound Design, provides design and installation services in western Massachusetts with a focus on creating sustainability, regeneration, and beauty. His first book, Lawns Into Meadows, Growing a Regenerative Landscape, was released in 2020.
