Land Planning

Strategic land development starts with the site—from the outside in, as well as from the inside out—through detailed goal identification.

"We tend to overestimate what we can do in the short term and grossly underestimate what we can do in the long term."

We analyze landscapes via GIS mapping in large-scale projects and through on-site mapping of features and processes of the site in smaller-scale projects. We spend a higher proportion of time on site than most landscape architects in order that the developments are truly integrated within, not opposed to, the natural patterns of the place. Land-planning services include site analysis and master planning as well as development feasibilities and schematic production. Designing access and siting buildings, utilities, roadways, gardens and other site features are primary aspects of master planning services. More specific design for construction flows into the next step in the process: site design and development.
