How We Work
Every landscape we create is a new Eden: with the potential to bring a bit of paradise into the places where we live, work and play. We’ve brought this philosophy to a variety of projects and settings, including commercial and civic plazas, healthcare and healing gardens, memorials, green roofs, nature-based playgrounds and more.
Among our past clients:
Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin
Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin

Frequently Asked Questions
Why should we hire you?
Our expertise has made us one of the premiere landscape architecture firms in Wisconsin. As a mid-sized, boutique firm, we’re able to offer more personal, focused service than you might get from a large, multidisciplinary firm and yet offer more professionalism and capacity than you might get from a solo professional.
We also believe that landscape design should be FUN. If you’re looking to woo a planning commission or other vested party, you can count on us to get everyone excited about the landscape possibilities.
Do you design and build?
Think of us as the architects of the outdoors. We’re the visionaries on a landscape project, and we partner with architects, engineers, developers, contractors, artists and others when needed to bring our designs to life. We’re comfortable leading multidisciplinary teams and also collaborating with other vendors as a trusted advisor on an existing team.
How soon can you start?
We’re often booked 3-6 months out, but call us if you have a more immediate need. We may be able to work something out or at least start guiding the design process.
Ideally, you should bring on a landscape architect as soon as you hire an architect and engineer. That way we can influence the whole project and advise the team on how to maximize the potential of your outdoor space before decisions are made that could hurt the quality of your landscape design. For example, no one appreciates a noisy air conditioning unit right next to the patio, and yet that’s often what happens when a landscape architect isn’t at the table. The earlier you hire us, the better your design will be.
How long does it take?
Some projects can take up to a year or more from conception to completion. The design phase of a project usually takes 3-6 months, and then there’s also the time needed for the permitting process, documentation for bidding for a contractor to build the site, and final inspection. But our relationships with clients often last long beyond a specific project, and we value those long-term partnerships.
Do you do residential projects?
We no longer do residential work. But if you need recommendations on vendors that can design a home landscape project, we’re happy to help.
What’s your service area?
We are licensed to work in Wisconsin. We primarily serve clients in Southeastern Wisconsin but have been hired for projects across the state.
Who is your ideal client?
We love to work with discerning clients who value good design and service and are willing to invest it. Ideally, we prefer to work directly with a project’s decision-maker so we can work as efficiently as possible.
What’s the first step?
If possible, we’d love to chat face to face. Get in touch with us and let’s meet to discuss your project.
