Designs that Engage and Sustain the Environment
Imagine your landscape as an inviting place for both people and the environment. Whether it’s your home, business, shoreline, or mitigation site, Watershed landscape architects can help enhance the aesthetic appeal, day-to-day use, and ecological function of your property with a design that is enjoyable and environmentally sound.
We develop low-impact, ecological- and habitat-focused landscape designs and planting plans for parks, mixed-use developments, shorelines, roadways, and trails. Our architects and designers work with Watershed permitting specialists and engineers, ensuring that designs are feasible and sustainable.
