Terrain Planning & Design has the credentials you need to get the most out of your project.

From the North Country down through the Lakes Region, in central NH and on into Greater Boston, we have a unique process of site improvement that blends the latest science with our own brand of time-tested arboreal and terrain improvement artistry.

We have the experience to oversee the entire design project – from the concept phase through the final touches – and integrate the natural world with the built environment. We offer years of real world experience – actually working “in the field” – and a client services and personal attention ethos that take a back seat to no one!

Loving where you live, and keeping your home in harmony with natural elements – especially here in beautiful New England – is what makes for the good life. Whether you have a lake house, a wooded retreat or suburban or small town dwelling, we can create the feel you’re looking for…

Why a Landscape Architect vs. a Landscape Designer?

With a landscape architect, you know you’re getting a licensed professional, with extensive formal education and training, and who has passed a rigorous registration exam at the state level. We employ the latest in architectural drafting and 3D CAD (computer-aided design) which fosters creativity, and efficiency in all planning and material assessment.

Our horticultural training is helpful in knowing all indigenous species, and those that thrive in each of the New England climates and micro-climates. Stewardship of the land, working with nature, not against it, is what we strive for. Storm water management, a native palette of ornamental plants, and an environmental sensitivity – all lead to sustainable designs that respect the site and reflects your personality.

Our integrated design approach uses an architect’s eye and we look at things like entrance sequencing, snow and garbage removal, and a full “inside-out” approach that connects the inside of your home to the natural scape of the outdoors.
