LandSight is a landscape design/build company managed by Dustin Welch in Portland, OR.  Dustin is a landscape contractor with an All Phase License from the Oregon Landscape Contractor’s Board.  With undergraduate degrees in Fine Arts and Journalism and a graduate degree in Landscape Architecture, Dustin is a multi-disciplined artist with the ability to interpret, design and construct landscapes.  He has specialized in planting design and historic preservation.

Spending more than 10 years in the nursery trade as a retailer, grower and sales representative, Dustin’s interest in plants turned toward design and landscape architecture.  He enjoys the collaboration among clients, designers and builders in a process that produces a site specific landscape.  Dustin has emphasized drought tolerance, seasonal variability and textural contrasts in his planting designs.

As a University of Oregon researcher, Dustin worked on several cultural landscape reports for the National Park Service and the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department.  Studying the work of Depression Era landscape architects, reinforced Dustin’s interest in the natural and rustic aesthetic.  His work included reports for Silver Falls State Park and the ghost town of Golden, OR.  Working in Mt. Rainier National Park exposed him to the beautiful craftsmanship of the Works Project Administration.

His design is influenced by the bold, flowing, sculptural qualities of Isamu Noguchi and the grand parks of Frederic Law Olmsted.  Sustainability, ecology, stewardship, and art guide Dustin’s design strategies.

    Mr. Welch:

    My name is Barry Ferich, and I am a 30 year recycled metal artist specializing in custom artwork….I have placed over 1200 pieces throughout the world.

    Currently I am placing my metal art in fireplaces and firepits for a breathtaking combination of fire and steel……when the fire is out it becomes a focal sculpture….(no one is doing this..I’d like to start something…)

    I can also custom create freestanding garden, interior (wall hangings /freestanding), or patio pieces of almost any size. All of the materials used are recycled.

    I will happily send pictures of my work if you would like. All my pictures are best viewed on Instagram..(Can be accessed from front page of my website ) Also facebook Barry Ferich

    Thank you for your time and I look forward to working with you.

    PS. some of the smaller pieces are excellent end of project ( thank you) accent pieces for large job clients…
