Mr. Gache grew up in San Francisco, where his appreciation for both open and urban spaces was nurtured by nature in a bustling city. During his youth, Riz participated in promoting environmental and cultural awareness with non-profit programs such as the San Francisco Conservation Corps and the West Bay Pilipino Group in South of Market neighborhood. After earning his Landscape Architecture, B.S. degree at UC Davis, he worked for several stellar Bay Area offices ranging from corporate A & E firms to smaller, more design specific studios. Now with a professional career of nearly 30 years operating as his own firm and as a consultant, he has managed numerous large scale projects and worked closely with architects, engineers, city agencies, contractors, and most notably, the Community. 

Riz enjoys volunteering and remains active in his neighborhood. He also spends quality free time camping with his daughter, trekking the eastern Nevada desert on his motorcycle and hiking SF's Glen Park Canyon with his dog. As his passion for landscape architecture strengthens, he continues to collaborate with other professionals in the industry -- seeking out new design techniques and analytical solutions. From schematic design to final construction, Riz is devoted to creating ecological, beautiful and inspiring landscapes.
