Normal Landscape Cooperative is a landscaping company founded in the Normaltown neighborhood of Athens, Georgia, offering craftsman quality and ecosystem friendly landscape design and build services. Our goal is to help improve and beautify the greater Athens area with gardens of native and edible plants, durable handcrafted hardscapes, and a focus on creating unique outdoor living spaces.
Nick Lapointe’s work at Normal Landscape Cooperative is informed by his background working in agriculture and ag research and rooted in his time studying Soil Science and Sociology at the University of Maryland. An incurable generalist with interests across many fields, Nick is keenly interested in the intersection of broad systems thinking, holistic design, and practical hands-on experience as an avenue to generate creative solutions to problems. Outside of work he spends time building things, gardening, and playing music in his recording studio.
Jessica Lapointe studied Environmental Science at the University of Maryland concentrating on soil, water and land resources, and went on to work in the research of sustainable and regenerative methods in agriculture. She has since moved into landscaping work as an avenue to find more insects, snakes, and lizards in the field. The creative eye that she brings to her landscaping craft is also useful in her stained glass artwork.
