Background DTR Associates
Natural Living Spaces That Enhance Your Life
Each member of the DTR Associates team plays a vital role in conceiving, creating and crafting successful outdoor environments for the clients we serve. Team members include designers degreed in landscape architecture and / or environmental design, urban planners, management professionals and a crew of thoroughly trained, highly skilled craftsmen.


DTR Associates, Inc. was founded in 1995 by David Thorn. Since then, we have undertaken many residential and commercial projects that involve a high degree of complexity. Our experience has equipped us to work effectively with a wide array of site conditions, contractors and clients.


Professionalism, teamwork, and uncommon attention to detail have earned DTR Associates many distinctions. Throughout the years, the design and installation teams of DTR Associates, Inc. have been recognized for our efforts by the following organizations:

The Ohio Landscapers Association
Cleveland Botanical Garden
The Plain Dealer
Ohio Nursery and Landscape Association
Associated Landscape Contractors of America
Cleveland Magazine
Horticultural Society of New York
Massachusetts Horticultural Society

In addition, DTR Associates, Inc. was selected to design and install the 1/2 acre entry feature garden at the National City Cleveland Home and Garden Show from 1999 - 2005. Due to the newest member of the DTR family - ThornCreek Winery and Gardens located in Aurora, Ohio - we have chosen to focus our efforts on creating the ultimate setting for the enjoyment of fine wines, good food and friendly conversation. Opening in 2006, this new venue will appeal to all of your senses! Please call 330-562-9245 for additional information and to be placed on our mailing list.
