swapS.gifModern Landscape Design
We bring a new vision to every project, seeking novel design answers to old garden problems.  Our clients break free from cliché with vertical landscapes, stormwater capture and reuse programs, architectural fences and decks, low-voltage LED lighting, high-density urban edibles, native low-water sedges and meadowgrasses as alternative lawns, and other good ideas from our drafting table.
