Gary Johnson

There were no trees anywhere, says Gary Johnson, the former chief landscape architect for the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Gary Johnson first began working on the Parkway in the 1970s while it was still being constructed. In those years, he spent all week driving the length of the Parkway, inspecting various sites, returning home on the weekends only to recreate the weeklong drive the following Monday.
After a stint out west, Johnson returned to the Parkway in 1994 as the chief landscape architect, where his job entailed restoring the landscape to better represent that museum-like notion. After decades of rehabilitation, the Parkway is now experiencing peak beauty, offering a cinematic experience of scenic valleys and crescendos for visitors driving the road.
I feel like the more people understand about the effort that went into the Parkways design, theyll have a better understanding about why it needs to be protected, Johnson says.
