Thomas Flint Landscape Design & Development was started in 2004 with myself and 2 employees. Our focus was the same in 2004 as it is now, constructing high quality outdoor living spaces and swimming pools while offering the best customer service and experience in the industry.
We do not cut grass or do maintenance we focus purely and only on construction. The company has grown to 19 employees over the last 12 years all of which have been hand selected because they have the right attitude and mindset to fit the framework of the company. Our people are dedicated to the trade and our customers, we love our jobs! The proof is in our portfolio.
Over the last 12 years we have fought the urge to get “bigger” and instead focused on getting better, more efficient and understanding what our customers are looking for.
We have an experienced staff of some of the best minds in the business from the bottom up. Owner operator Thomas Flint has a Bachelors Degree in Landscape Design from SUNY Cobleskill and has studied landscape construction around the word before starting the business in 2004.

Jessica Orellano is a formally trained and experienced landscape designer with over 10 years of industry experience and a Bachelor Degree in Landscape Design.

The experience with us is different than others in our area because; we are on the cutting edge, we have passion, creativity and are having fun doing it. The owner is closely involved in each project, we are big enough to handle these large projects but small enough to care.

Just writing to express my thanks for a fantastic job well done by the team at Thomas Flint. It was definitely a pleasure working with Tom and the team there. From the initial start of the requested project through the end everything went as planned and we could not be more pleased with the outcome. Not only was everything completed much quicker than I had expected, it was done thoroughly. I look forward to working with Tom and everyone again in the near future!
