Vance joined David J. Frank in 2002. He is a LEED Accredited Professional, which makes him uniquely qualified for projects that need to meet specific sustainable and environmental criteria, but he enjoys the creative challenges of creating custom home landscapes as well. With all projects, Vance provides detailed plans and estimates and supervises the project from start to finish. Throughout the process, his goal is not simply to meet needs, but to exceed expectations while being fiscally and environmentally responsible.

Vance provides complete commercial and residential landscape architecture services with extensive experience in sustainable sites and environmental solutions, green roofs, storm water management, native plants and natural gardens, and designing water features ranging from reflecting pools and ponds to waterfalls and fountains. Vance has serviced one of Wisconsin’s largest distribution companies properties since 2005 and has won several national and state awards.
