Ric Fields is the founder and principal of Fieldscape since launching the firm in 1993. Since then, he's had the good fortune to collaborate with some of the most creative architects in the world on a wide variety of projects, for clients who are interested in only the highest level of quality and detailed design.
Ric attributes his success, in large part, to listening carefully to each client, asking pertinent questions, and contributing his knowledge, experience and imagination to the conversation. In doing so, he adds to the team's collective expertise while recognizing that every project is ultimately defined by the positive experience of the people moving through it. This results in much more successful, rewarding and higher quality project, delivering a beautiful and functional environment for the client.
Prior to Fieldscape, Ric worked with the multidisciplinary firm Design Studios West in Denver, CO. His expertise is in landscape architecture and site planning, with a diverse background in urban design, park planning, land development planning, golf course/resort design and commercial and residential design.
Ric is a licensed Landscape Architect in the state of Colorado, and has served as Consultant to many Design Review Boards throughout the Rocky Mountains. He loves living in the Vail Valley, and enjoys swimming, bicycling and karate, but questions whether golf is really a sport.
