Today we’d like to introduce you to Mateusz Rozanski.
Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
First of all, thank you for your interest in my work. My current career started here in Baltimore after I ultimately decided to move to the US from Poland.
I found my neighborhood treeless and under a lot of heat stress in summer. Quickly, I realized that without my engagement things won’t change quickly. This led to my participation in several tree-planting initiatives.
Before I knew it, I had a landscaping business specializing in green/climate resilience infrastructure.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It was definitely not an easy road. At the time I started, there was very little understanding of green infrastructure and the severity of the climate crisis in Baltimore.
Urban green infrastructure (and urban public space in general) still struggles with negative car dominance, archaic hardscape materials, and suburban design.
As you know, we’re big fans of Rozanski Landscaping. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about the brand?
Rozanski landscaping specializes in climate-resilient landscaping projects in public or public/private spaces. In our projects, we bring together knowledge of arboriculture, stormwater management, heat stress reduction, and urban planning. We use materials and techniques promoting sustainability and long-term solutions.
Our projects focus on prioritizing pedestrian vitality, crime reduction, and economic growth.
We all have a different way of looking at and defining success. How do you define success?
Success… a combination of achievements that provide financial rewards from making the world around me better.
