Herman Salm has over thirty years of experience in the landscape architectural profession and has implemented projects on nearly all continents.
Educated at the University of Canberra, Australia, and based in Munich since 1986, he is a registered landscape architect and town planner, (BayAK).
Having been the managing director and CEO for international projects, and affiliated over 17 years with one of the most prominent landscape practices in Germany, Herman has personally overseen the completion of numerous projects that have varied in scale and complexity.

The practice has a worldwide network of collaborating architects, specialty consultants and well established clients.  The cultural diversity of projects, locations, clients, staff and collaborating consultants, as well as the implementation of all projects, has always been exciting and inspiring.

Landscape architecture and design has acquired a more important status due to the ever increasing awareness for the environment, demand for improved living standards, improved educational standard and access to new media technologies.
The open european market has a very mobile work force and through the use of new communication technologies allow the practice to react at short notice to new demands, with qualified staff and when required, inter-nationally, with an established global network of landscape design colleagues and consultants.

Successful planning is not about painting a pretty picture of what a community could be, but rather carefully crafting a realistic vision for the future. Guiding a comprehensive and broad-based process, the planning group emboldens communities to, through creative collaboration, develop a framework that considers the unique circumstances and establishes a guide to achieve meaningful goals.
Creating an uncommon space doesn’t involve moulding and manipulating the land to a specific purpose. It requires honouring the land and allowing it to reveal the best ways to accommodate the vision for a special place.
