"Landscape Architecture serves to reconnect human beings with the   elements of the natural landscape."...Dan Kiley, Landscape Architect                                                                       



Our planning process starts by developing Project Programming and Design Criteria. Next, all data collected from comprehensive site analyses are documented and graphically illustrated to determine site opportunities for development and any project limitations. Then, elements of the Design Criteria are placed into their respective ​functional groups, and proposed features are arranged into a Comprehensive Site Master Plan. If desired by the client, color-rendered perspective drawings are then prepared to depict the design layout, proposed features and all site attributes.

Commercial, Institutional, and Resort planning and design focuses on the client's proposed site development program and design criteria, the visual impact of the new facility, the functional uses, budget, schedule, and land use efficiency, and its relationship to the adjacent land uses within the community. Our team, which consists of landscape architects, planners, and engineers working in conjunction with colleagues in related fields, provides dynamic project solutions that are sustainable, viable, and cost-effective.

We balance innovative ideas with project functionality and timeless beauty, while creating wonderful and inspiring experiences for site users. We site plan, design, and construct outdoor spaces and memorable places which serve as connections with communities, maximize value, and are landmarks and cultural destinations. 


​​​​By staying abreast of current business practices, marketing strategies, and property development trends, we have the skills and knowledge to achieve project excellence in the realm of commercial, institutional, and resort planning. With decades of experience and professional continuing education in new technology and construction materials, smart products, and social trends, we design/build elegant, but practical and stylish projects.
