Michael Mushak

Michael Mushak, the founder and design director of Tuliptree Site Design, Inc., has over 30 years of experience in the field of landscape architecture. He graduated from Rutgers University with a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture, and is a licensed landscape architect in CT, NY, and NJ. His career has included work on a variety of projects, including public parks, museums, urban planning, corporate buildings, neighborhood improvements, and a wide range of residential projects across the country.  

Over the last two decades, Mr. Mushak has focused primarily on serving residential clients in the northeast, and has completed over 800 projects. He has particularly enjoyed developing strong and long- lasting relationships with many of his clients, some for over 20 years, based on a professional ethic of maintaining consistently high quality and value.

He has traveled extensively visiting important landscapes around the globe, finding inspiration in the historical and sensual traditions of both the East and the West. Whether traditional or modern, he believes that strong landscape design should appropriately reflect the environmental and cultural conditions presented by each unique site and client.

Mr. Mushak's  landscape designs have been featured in Architectural Digest, Bedford Magazine, Country Living, Greenwich Magazine, Home, Hudson Valley Magazine, Metropolitan Home, and the New York Times.
