Sally Reynolds

Senior Associate

Driven by a social and ecological ethos, Sally leads many of RELM’s most public projects. Trained in restoration ecology, she skillfully employs landscape’s performative qualities to resolve complexities that arise between man-made and natural systems. Her designs strive to connect communities with their surrounding environment, reinforcing the role urban nature plays in daily life. Sally’s superior horticultural knowledge which transcends regional limits ensures RELM’s projects are beautiful and performative alike. In addition to leading multiple projects, Sally oversees studio-wide planting design, educating younger staff on native plant palettes and maintenance regimes. Projects include an 87-acre park in Carson, the Creek at Dominguez Hills; an 73-acre landscape at LAX for the new consolidated car rental facility, along with two building renovation initiatives at UCLA—the Paul Revere Williams-designed Botany Building and Rosenfeld Hall. She is also leading two K-12 campuses, Abraham Lincoln High School in East Los Angeles and Magnolia High School in Anaheim, and four medical office campuses for Kaiser Permanente. Prior to joining RELM, Sally worked at Andropogon and OLIN, where she served as chief planting designer for Apple Campus 2 in Cupertino, CA.
