Christopher Hoy, PLA CID

We are the park where you play, the community where you live, the campus where you study, the memorial where you remember, and the mainstreet where you shop.  We are landscape architects.

For us, it's not a 9 to 5 job, it's what we spend our days and nights talking about, and working on.  We practice, and continually refine our craft by observing the world around us.  We incorporate these experiences into every project we undertake.

As landscape architects, we are experienced in planning for the interaction of people with the environment - with a trained focus on connecting people and places.  We integrate these skills into a variety of specialized services to provide a powerful vision for any design or community development project, while maintaining a strong understanding of the functionality and maintainability of the space.

Our working style is oriented around teamwork and collaboration with our clients, the community, and allied consulting professionals.  Through a design and planning process that affords each member of the team the opportunity to individually and collectively identify issues and explore ideas together, we believe everyone gains a deeper understanding of the challenges and solutions – in effect supporting a more efficient means of moving throughout the design and construction process.





“We especially need imagination in science. It is not all mathematics, nor all logic, but is somewhat beauty and poetry.”
