A harmonious landscape design creates an environment that is sensitive and responsive to the land. Our approach is to organize design within a series of "outdoor rooms" which can be an extension of the interior, so that the line between the interior-exterior becomes blurred. The landscape also becomes an extension of the client, a place that touches their heart and allows them to daydream, sit quietly or play loudly.
Achieving harmony in landscape design entails an effective blend of both the art and science. The art of design requires attention to simplicity and elegance. The science of design must take into account the site analysis ("anatomy of the site") such as the topography of the site, drainage, weather patterns, existing vegetation, wetlands and natural water features among others.
A landscape is a dynamic environment that changes and evolves as it ages. Landscape architecture is a delicate balance between the "static design" (the hardscape of steps, walls, terraces, swimming pools, etc.) and the "living design" (the landscape of trees, shrubs, gardens, etc).
