John Pagenkopf





With more than two decades of diverse experience in real estate development and land design, John set out on his own last year as a landscape architect, land planner and designer and was immediately deluged with projects. John’s award-winning work has included everything from hosting a design charrette for a 2,500-home, master-planned golf course community to creating a 100-square foot knot garden. The former Mayor of Lumberton has parlayed his experience in municipal government and his career stints with big firms like Toll Brothers and Whitesell into a booming practice.


Watch for NPO’s to take advantage of his contacts with community development bankers to broker funding for county-based projects in the year ahead.
