As President of Anderson Lesniak Limited, Inc., Alyson Utter is committed to creative quality design for all work that is associated with this office of Landscape Architects.  Her professional experience includes a wide cross-section of projects from Regional Park Design, Multi-Family Housing to Medical and other Institutional Facilities.  This wealth of experience has produced a design philosophy that is centered around practical solutions that are functional for the long term, aesthetically pleasing, and fit the budget goals.  As the Principle Landscape Architect for the firm, Alyson is involved in all of the office project workload.  Because of her guidance, this firm has a reputation for a high standard of service, consistently delivering quality work, on time, and within budget constraints.  

The HCC Ybor Campus Library Courtyard was designed by Alyson with the idea of providing for the needs of the students as well as accommodating the general public, in an inviting outdoor space.  This project was installed over a year ago and the environment is still pleasing despite heavy usage.  Recent Projects include the Riverview Oaks Development, which is a Public/Private partnership for redeveloping a large inner city housing project into a new community with Single Family, Multi-family, Elderly Housing and Commercial Buildings that work together as a unified neighborhood.  Over 50 Grand Oak trees were saved on the site to provide an impressive setting for the community and its common areas.  

Several years ago, Alyson completed construction documents for the Largo Public Library which was designed to be a State-of-the-Art Library Facility that doubles as a gathering place for Largo citizens and a future entry to a new passive Park.  The indoor and outdoor spaces are pedestrian friendly with landscape that provides climatic relief from the heat as well as refreshing colors and texture.  The following projects demonstrate some of Alyson’s experience with Academic Facilities: 

* Deer Park Elementary– Citrus Park
* Freedom High School – New Tampa
* Liberty Middle School – New Tampa
* Shore Acres Elementary – St. Petersburg
* Paul Wharton High School – New Tampa
* Dunedin Middle School - Clearwater
* Safety Harbor Elementary – Safety Harbor
