Landscape Designer & Assistant Land Planner | TFMoran
Published in High Profile Monthly’s Women In Construction Supplement
Sophie Haddock is a landscape designer and assistant land planner at TFMoran. She holds a bachelor’s degree in landscape architecture with a minor in community planning from the University of Rhode Island. She also serves as treasurer of Granite State Landscape Architects (GSLA).
Sophie’s role at TFMoran is to plan and design landscaping projects, working to bring balance to the site and harmonize with its setting. This year, she helped the Town of Derry redesign and revitalize a historic public park. Sophie’s role included design of a new playground, water fountain, “spray-ground” splash pad, and nature trails for all ages to enjoy. Her favorite part of the job is designing spaces that benefit people, as well as their environment and ecosystems.
Sophie utilizes Lumion, Sketchup, and AutoCAD to create lifelike context in her landscape designs by turning any space into a 3D model. By showing the plants’ sizes, colors, and textures the designer can find the perfect result before reflecting that onto a landscape plan to help clients and contractors better understand how their project will turn out.
In her free time, Sophie feeds her passion for environmentalism. She and her husband recently purchased their first home which was overrun with invasive plants. They have enjoyed restoring its natural charm by planting native species, starting new gardens, and encouraging biodiversity. Sophie also enjoys reading, baking, and spending time with family and friends.
