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.
