Middle Tennessee Native Connor Ball graduated from Mississippi State University with a BLA with an emphasis in gold course design in 2003.  All landscape architects enter the field for different reasons and have their own experiences and specialties. Connor entered the field as a golf course architect and planner in 2003.  He has had an integral role in a wide range of projects from golf courses and resorts planning, neighborhood master planning, and commercial projects throughout the Southeast. That experience gave him an understanding of the "big picture" and also how "the smallest details can change the overall user experience of the space."  Over the years his focus has switched to the multi-family and single family residential, commercial, and the healthcare market where he helps clients extract their ideas onto paper so that they obtain exactly what they have envisioned for their space.  He takes pride in knowing about the plants in our climate zone and how each one, in their own way, can better the design and the environment through color, texture, and movement.

In his free time Connor enjoys watching his kids play sports, spending time with his wife Lindsey, fishing, and cheering on Manchester City.


Phillipe Chadwick


Nashville native Phillipe Chadwick earned his Bachelor of Landscape Architecture from Mississippi State University before working for the City of Franklin planning department. In 2009, he joined Cheekwood as a horticulturist where he expanded his creative talents and vision by transforming the gardens into lush scenes of texture and color. While at Cheekwood he expanded his vast knowledge of plants and native ecosystems for three years. Phillipe worked for himself for almost ten years as a private designer and quickly became a go-to for brides, corporations, and party planners as a floral designer. His passion has always been flowers and plants and he designed, installed, and maintained numerous high-end gardens throughout Nashville.


In his free time, he enjoys traveling, collecting rare and unusual plants, and maintaining a large reef aquarium. He is a current host on NPT’s Volunteer Gardener and regularly participated in the Antiques & Garden Show, and multitude of major local events and installations around Nashville. Phillipe’s deep knowledge of Nashville’s natural landscape and his passion for horticulture and art collide to show off his unexpected and elegant design style.
