Landscape Architecture

With a true landscape architect, you gain the security of having a licensed professional, with extensive education and training, who has passed a rigorous registration exam in the state. 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 extensive horticultural training is helpful in knowing all indigenous species and those that thrive in climates and micro-climates.

Land Planning | Master Planning

Land planning, also known as master planning, is a critical first step in determining the best and most economical use of a parcel of land, private or commercial. We do a thorough evaluation of all real estate before development which gives a clear cost/benefit analysis long before any construction begins. This is essential for land developers, municipalities, commercial realtors, and large estates who rely financially on issues like site location, micro-climate, as well as zoning and other legal restrictions.

Residential and Commercial Landscape Design

Unlike many of our competitors, we can design and oversee the project from start to finish. We strive to blend your home or commercial property within the natural environment and with intelligent and thoughtful structures, additions and landscaping choices that are aesthetically pleasing, yet functional and reflect your personality. We take an architect’s analytical approach, and a designers artistic eye when considering entrance sequencing, snow and garbage removal, and an “inside-out” approach that connects the inside of your home to the land.

Project Management

We offer project management services to assist our clients in bid administration and solicitation, contractor selection, project scheduling and oversight of construction activities. We represent you, our client, and we inspect the quality of work being done and stay on top of the timeline and the budget. Project managers save you time and money, and what’s more valuable than that?
