MRM Design Group, P.A. is eastern North Carolina’s foremost landscape architectural 
firm. Affectionately known as “backyard architects,” MRM is actually a comprehensive, 
full service company offering a wide range of typical commercial and residential design 
services such as layouts for office complexes, banks, schools, apartment complexes,  
shopping centers and more. In addition, we offer several specialities, such as the design 
of subdivision entryways (both signage and landscaping) and the design of hardscapes–
amenities such as lighting, walkways, synthetic putting greens, driveways, parking lots, 
plazas, arbors and walls. Remember, MRM is more than just planting design! 

One of only a handful of landscape architectural firms between Raleigh and the coast, 
MRM was founded in 1987 and is registered with the state of North Carolina (#C-52). 
Jonathan L. Melvin, RLA, ASLA, founder and president, has been specifically licensed 
as a landscape architect since 1987, although he actually possesses over 35 years 
experience in the overall landscape construction industry. 

MRM has a reputation for developing prestigious commercial, institutional, industrial 
and residential projects. Among these are East Carolina University, NC Wesleyan 
College, Barton College, Beaufort County Community College, Northern Telecom, 
the Harnett County Courthouse, the Rowe, the Hoyle and the Johnson residences in
