We all have experienced the results of landscape architecture on a daily basis as we go through our lives, from home to work to public spaces and urban areas. The art of a landscape architect is to bring symmetry and harmony to outdoor spaces that encourages a healthy atmosphere not only with regard to water or green infrastructure, but to our lives as well. Landscape architects help people come together, building or developing ties between individuals and the spaces they live, resulting in a greater sense of community and appreciation of our surroundings
Landscape architects have a passion and an eye for detail. They are problem solvers in the most fundamental way, constantly thinking about all of the pieces that work together in an outdoor space, from the house to the woods, the streets, water run-off, zoning or grading conditions and everything in between.
