Michael Josephson

Founder and Landscape Architect

As a passionate landscape architect, my joy lies in crafting outdoor spaces that resonate with the unique visions and lifestyles of my clients.

With a commitment to excellence, I not only bring expertise, but a genuine desire to enhance your outdoor living experience. Your landscape is not just a project for me; it's an opportunity to transform spaces into lasting sources of joy, relaxation, and connection.


I am dedicated to being your trusted partner, ensuring that every design not only meets but exceeds your expectations, making your outdoor dreams a living reality.

After completing his Bachelors of Arts in Landscape Architecture at The University of Arizona, Michael worked for decades to provide high quality landscape design and services for other firms and ventures. When it was time for a "Fresh Start", he launched his own company. Michael credits his success to his commitment to his clients and his passion for the craft.

"I've hired Michael for two projects and he has been a pleasure to work with through both. He is an excellent communicator and was very attentive to my ideas. As a business owner myself, punctuality is very important to me- Michael was always right on schedule.

"Fresh Start is a pleasure to work with. They took our dreams to reality as they handled several large scale projects with ease. High quality all around and fair prices. We look forward to working with Fresh Start again in the future."

Our Three Pillars

These three concepts guide our team through each and every project.

Integrity: Although sometimes hard to come by in the contractor market, honesty and integrity are non-negotiable in our business practices. We believe in being transparent and trustworthy in all our dealings with clients, from initial consultations to project completion. Our commitment to integrity ensures that our clients can have complete confidence in our recommendations, decisions, and actions.

Client-Centric Approach: Building strong relationships with our clients is at the heart of everything we do. We listen attentively to their needs, preferences, and visions, collaborating closely throughout the design and construction process to bring their dreams to life. Our transparent communication and personalized service ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience for every client.

Quality: Dedication to excellence permeates every aspect of our work. We take pride in our meticulous attention to detail, using high-quality materials and skilled craftsmanship to ensure longevity and beauty in every landscape we create. Our commitment to quality extends from initial concept to final installation and beyond.

Fresh Start Design/Build Group, a family-owned business, holds Landscape Architect credentials from The University of Arizona. We approach every adjustment to your home landscape with thoughtful consideration and attention to detail.
