J.Peter Fleury graduated in 1976 with a bachelors degree in Landscape Architecture. For 8 years he worked with different firms on projects in Denver, San Antonio, Austin, Japan, Michigan, Italy, and India.
In 1984 he chose to settle in Austin, Texas because of the year-round climate, which is conductive to many landscape styles; the hill country terrain, with its boulder and rock capabilities; and the vibrant Austin lifestyles and cultures.
In 1985 Peter started Oasis Gardens as a sole proprietorship. The business grew with Austin in the nineties and became incorporated.
Manager Bill Agin, one of our two licensed, irrigators brings technical expertise for our various waterscapes and lighting systems. He helps manage our irrigation, masonry, lighting, carpentry and septic crews. Mike Nolan also came on board with another Landscape Architecture degree, and helped Oasis Gardens start its own nursery, farm, and supply yard. Meanwhile, Peter gained more national and international experience designing projects in California, Bali, Italy, Hawaii, and Brazil.
Oasis Gardens is very happy to welcome Vivian Loftin in October 2010, as our licensed landscape architect #2236 with all her expertise and experience, a great asset to our team.
