Meet Alyssa Vanden Engel

Landscape Design/Build Division Manager

Landscape Designer

Over 10 Years in the Industry

Alyssa’s current management position with Shades of Green Landscapes has been shaped by learning the trade from her father and grandfather while working for her family’s former landscape business.


Raised in a family with a long line of landscaping history, the decision to study Landscape Design and Environmental Design & Planning was natural. Her passion for art and design, love for the outdoors, and quest for environmental sustainability is what makes Landscape Design meaningful to her. Alyssa brings fresh, unique design ideas to her clients, and takes pride in her creative design process and attention to detail.


Alyssa, now a third generation landscaper in the Vanden Engel legacy, continues to work alongside her father Paul, brother Steven and valued team members at Shades of Green Landscapes.
