Patrick Keogh joined the Earthadelic team in 2021 and has adapted quickly to the Earthadelic way of life. Having a Bachelor of Science in Interior Architecture and a Master of Architecture, Patrick has a huge impact on our client's designs and great attention to detail specifically tailored to each project. He draws inspiration from his parent's strong work ethic and traditional Japanese, Scandinavian, and Shaker design culture. Patrick believes that the design of a chair or home has the potential to teach you more about craftsmanship and the human body than a skyscraper. When Patrick is not creating designs for Earthadelic, he enjoys biking, camping, woodworking, and overlanding in his vintage Landcruiser.

Rudi Wimberley has been a part of the Earthadelic design team since 2021, designing beautiful home landscapes using lush native plant palettes. Rudi has a Bachelor's degree in Plant Sciences with a concentration in Sustainable Landscape Design from the University of Tennessee. Since working for Earthadelic, she has applied herself through incorporating new base mapping and rendering techniques, assisting with plant placement during the landscape installations, and has created educational documents for clients and Earthadelic University. Rudi is interested in designing landscapes from an ecologically friendly aesthetic to fit any site, whether for a roadside or highly manicured residence. Her favorite types of projects are those where she has the freedom to choose a dense native plant palette that exceeds the client’s dreams while simultaneously providing habitat for pollinators, native plants, and wildlife in ways that would never be noticed without looking closely. Rudi is inspired by Piet Oudolf (NY High Line), James Hitchmough (Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park), and Larry Weaner (Author of Garden Revolution). Her interests outside of work include painting and collage, hiking, cooking, and being involved in her church community.
“What’s coming will come, and we will meet it when it does.”
David Dalton joined the Earthadelic team in 2020 as a Landscape Designer and helped establish Earthadelic University, an employee education program. David earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Plant Sciences and Landscape Systems, Summa Cum Laude in 2003, and attended Graduate Studies from 2009 to 2013 in Landscape Architecture. During his Graduate Studies, he was the Teaching Assistant for the Native Plants in Landscaping Course. His design interests involve ecological restoration, bold, unique color and texture combinations, and creating four seasons of interest — emphasizing Fall color and Winter structure just as much as Spring blooms and Summer foliage. David also enjoys incorporating landscape lighting into his designs that transform the experience of the space between daylight and nighttime. He particularly enjoys working on large-scale public or commercial spaces. David draws inspiration from immersing himself in nature, which he calls the “ultimate designer,” and of course, coffee. A few of his interests outside of work include full contact karaoke, country roads, transcendental meditation, and getting caught in the rain.

Jessica Taylor has worked for Earthadelic as a Landscape Designer since 2019. She has a Bachelor's degree in Landscape Architecture from Rutgers University and a Master's of Landscape Architecture from the University of Tennessee. Her favorite types of designs are clean, simple, and bold that inspire clients to spend time outside. Jessica is inspired by the beauty of the East Tennessee landscape, such as a rolling field of broom sedge turned gold by the winter’s sun or a patch of delicate maidenhair fern tenaciously growing on a rock ledge. In her personal time, Jessica enjoys hiking, kayaking, taking photographs, or throwing pottery.
“Spend as much time in nature as you can.”
Rebekah Rogers attended the University of Tennessee earning a Bachelor's Degree of Science in Landscape Design and was a Master's candidate in the Landscape Architecture and Plant Molecular Genetics programs. Rebekah grew up with passions for art and science. Spending part of her childhood in Morristown, Tennessee, then moved to Knoxville for college where she gained experience in Sustainable Landscape Design, Landscape Architecture, and spent years in a Biotechnology Lab learning Plant Molecular Genetics. All strengthened the love that she has for both plants and the creative aspects of design. Her goal is to design in a way that is ecologically responsible and honors the complexity of life around us in functional spaces that promote a more sustainable Tennessee. She loves working with native plants when she can and designing naturalistic spaces the most. On a personal level, she has been inspired by influential mentors and friends in her life. Seeing those she loves do what makes them happy and invest in her happiness has inspired her more than anything. On a design level, she is inspired by many Landscape Architects. One of her favorites is Roberto Burle Marx. Rebekah spends a lot of time drawing, reading, and spending time with those she loves. Camping, photography, learning about plants, and bugs are also hobbies she enjoys. Fireflies are one of her favorite bugs that she hopes to help in her line of work as they are an at-risk species.

Grant Smith joined the Earthadelic team over four years ago, working in the Sales and Design departments. Grant’s background is in landscape design and construction management, in which he earned a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Tennessee. Grant uses modern design to create bird and insect-friendly designs that require little water yet provide textural and color changes throughout the seasons. Grant's signature is using hardscape, lighting, lawn alternatives, and plant material to create a fitting design style that ties in new features with current ones. He enjoys envisioning the final product for clients and bringing it to fruition. Grant is inspired daily by his three young boys (Witt, Rhodes, & Griffin), his wife Kayla, and travel. In his spare time, he enjoys reading and competitive fishing.
“The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago, the second-best time is right now.”
Growing up with an ever-present love for nature and art, blended with a strong desire to create, Nathan ventured into the landscape design/build field as a teenager. After several years of hard work “in the field”, he was given the opportunity to try his hand in landscape design by a nurseryman who believed in him. Nathan was quickly captivated by transforming tired, neglected spaces into lush, beautiful places that brought excitement and joy to his clients. Over twenty years later, with experience in almost every area of the landscape industry, Nathan is thrilled to be working alongside my many colleagues at Earthadelic who share his same passion for creating spaces that truly exceed our clients’ dreams! Nathan is most passionate about witnessing the happiness that renewing a space brings, and he loves helping make a house feel like a home. In Nathan’s spare time, he enjoys fishing, cooking, gardening, anything to do with the water, getting lost in the woods, fitness, chickens, ethnic food, and good coffee.
