Nashville native Brad Hughes received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Plant Science and Landscape Systems with a Concentration in Ornamental Horticulture and Landscape Design in 2003 from The University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
After college he began his design career as a landscape designer/landscape maintenance manager for a local landscape firm with heavy focus on seasonal color displays at high end residential and commercial properties. His current designs utilize that experience to place special focus on a client’s realistic landscape maintenance goals to create spaces that won’t be a burden on the owner after installation. He enjoys developing and collaborating in the office on many different types of projects from small scale gardens to large scale commercial site plans. Brad has a special interest in utilizing 3D software to help clients visualize spaces before installation begins. In a full circle moment, having been an intern at Cheekwood during college, he helped with the recent design renovations and planning of the Blevins Japanese Garden at Cheekwood.
In his spare time, he enjoys traveling, spending time with family, and trying to keep up with his dog Luna "The Office Dog"

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.
