We’re not about suits and ties.
Our working environment is one of creativity and customer sensitivity. Our money and efforts don’t go into producing “slick” proposals. Our effort and time go into producing creative and excellent results for our clients. Not one of our clients is unimportant, so we give each project careful thought. Implementation is overseen by a senior professional, just as you would expect in a boutique firm.
It’s about respect.
We work with a deep respect for nature and tradition while exploring creative contemporary solutions. With the attention of a boutique firm, our clients are assured of insightful designs sensitive to individual needs. We are committed to providing uncommon attention in a small studio environment.
Green design is important in all of our plans. Landscape architecture has a long tradition of sensitivity to site ecology, and our emphasis on sustainability in design increases the need for environmentally sound development practices. We seek to conserve precious resources, minimize development impacts, and celebrate natural processes in all of our projects.
We strive for dynamic results.
We aim to make a positive impact through collaborative efforts with architects, engineers, planners, and engaged clients. We are accessible and always want to design the most valuable solutions for our clients. We feel this attention to collaboration is why our repeat business and referral percentage is so high.
Developing dynamic pedestrian spaces is the ultimate goal of many urban design projects. It’s important to coordinate elements of the landscape design while making the area foot-traffic friendly.
From large corporate offices to banks to medical facilities, commercial projects require integration of a multitude of features: parking, landscaping, storm drainage, hardscaping, lighting, and signage.
With projects completed at universities and K-12 schools, we develop campus master plans encompassing dormitories, educational buildings, athletic facilities, courtyards, and streetscapes.
We enjoy designing for competition and fun. Our greenway, community park, sports complex, and country club projects showcase the diversity of recreational landscape design.
Designing residential spaces requires the art of listening and responding to homeowners’ preferences. These intimate types of projects demand creativity and special attention to detail.
Thoughtful landscapes surrounding memorials, monuments, and worship gardens honor loved ones and those important to the community. Our award-winning designs increase the serenity and reflection inherent in these projects.
