The Guys

Singleton grew up in Columbus where he developed an affinity for nature and enjoyed seeing what the earth could produce. His parents and grandparents instilled in him a deep and abiding affection for nature. After earning a BS in Landscape Architecture from The Ohio State University, he worked as a Lead Designer in the landscape design/build industry until founding Foreground with Noah.

Noah was born and raised in central Ohio and has a passion for landscape deep in his bones and running through his veins. Growing up he helped in his dad’s vegetable garden and would spend his allowance on plants. Noah received his BS from Ohio State in Landscape Architecture where he partnered with Singleton on multiple projects. Before founding Foreground he worked on public parks, urban planning projects, and the landscape design/build industry.


What We Do

We are skilled artisans who create spaces that encourage families to come together and live outside of ordinary. 

At Foregound, our designs consider each family, their varied activities and schedules, their ideas and wishes, and their unique plans and goals.

We believe that outdoor spaces deserve the same creativity and attention as indoor spaces. Each landscape is created to delight, bringing enjoyment and excitement for years to come. No cookie cutter landscapes here.

Your architecture and site-specific conditions will inform the design process to create a unique plan that is far from ordinary.

From the first time we visit a site to the last day of construction we enjoy every moment of the creative and construction process and want you to feel the same.


How We Do It

At Foreground, we go beyond landscapes to create outdoor experiences.

Our Process:

  • Inventory client wishes and goals
  • Analyze current site conditions
  • Create conceptual design
  • Review design with client, revise, and finalize
  • Solicit bids from our trusted contractors
  • Manage the execution of the project
  • Throughout construction we ensure adherence to the highest standards of craftsmanship and quality
  • Once construction is complete we follow through with a maintenance plan and support to keep your outdoor living space and landscape feeling fresh and welcoming for years into the future.
