Sandra Youssef Clinton, FASLA, has won the 2013 Landscape Design award from the American Horticulture Society. Clinton is president of Clinton & Associates, PC, based in Hyattsville, Maryland. Prior to founding her own firm in 1998, Clinton was a senior associate with Oehme, van Sweden and Associates Inc. for 13 years. She was elected a Fellow in 2005.
Clinton‘s ecologically sensitive designs reflect her in-depth knowledge of plants, which is realized in the richness of the plant combinations in her finished works. Among her most notable projects are the Olmsted Walk at the National Zoological Park in Washington, D.C.; Rockefeller Park in New York City; and Rolling Prairie Farm in Indiana, which is media mogul Oprah Winfrey’s 160-acre private estate.
