Daniel Jones is the Operations Manager for Eden Design Group LLC (Maryland), where he was brought on to build the infrastructure and processes desired to grow that business. In 2001 he started his own lawn and landscaping business which he operated for 20 years. Over those two decades operating and growing his business he gained experience creating complementary systems for landscape and hardscapes to thrive in the varied conditions of subtropical Florida. Since moving to Maryland he has worked to understand the states unique ecology as well as its flora as he advises on new construction performed by Eden Design.

He is a proponent of renewable energy where feasible and believes homeowners and businesses alike should look for solutions in their hard and soft-scaping which will provide long term benefits to the ecology as well as eliminate wear and tear on structures.

He served on the advisory committee for Orlando City Commissioner Tony Ortiz in District 2 speaking not just on community and policing issues but advocating and advising for common sense approaches to landscape and building codes.
