Our Philosophy

terrain: noun \ tə-ˈrān  a.) the physical features of a tract of land b.) a field of knowledge or interest
Landscape Design Build

We believe that landscape architecture is a blend of art and science.  Successful designs link outside spaces with inside ones.  Whether working on a custom home, a school yard play area or a new commercial office building, we tackle every project with the same goal – to use a light-handed approach to create safe and enjoyable exterior spaces that meet the budgetary and programmatic needs of our client – while still maintaining the inherent beauty of the site.

Integrated Design Approach. The success of any project is achieved through the collaborative efforts of a qualified, experienced design team.  In our view, the most important team member is the client. We pride ourselves on an interactive design process working hand-in-hand with our clients to achieve their goals and solve their design challenges. These collaborative efforts often result in cost savings for our clients as well as a more harmonious finished project.

Stewardship. In designing outdoor spaces, we find it’s easier to work with nature than against it. Utilizing innovative storm-water management techniques, a native palette of ornamental plant material and environmental sensitivity, we are able to create sustainable designs that reflect and respect the character of any site.
