Steele is one of the most successful and outstanding landscape designers in contemporary America. He has a great influence on the development of landscape design. Steele's success has also benefited in part from his unique perspective in developing relationships with customers. He stressed the importance of integrating all elements in garden design, including vegetation, the building itself, and the preferences of people who use premises later.
