It would definitley be Jens Jensen. For those who don't know, he was the godfather of landscape architecture, creating city parks, such as Humbolt in Chicago, Dearborn park (Chicago) He designed and installed the landscape at Henry Fords home in Dearborn Michigan. He often worked with Fank Lloyd Wright, and they taught at each others schools.

Questions asked would be things such as what would he do to not only make a beautiful landscape, but also to conserve water. Would he write a set of maintenance insructions for a landscape he designed, so that the grounds crew can maintain the design integrity.
How did he get started in the landscape business.

The person i would like most to meet and talk to would be George Tomah. The most important question i would ask him would be how he keeps the pro fields looking so sweet!

I'd have to say I would like to speak with Donald Ross at #2 in Pinehurst over a cool glass of iced tea. I have a great deal of respect for this man.
