Great Landscape Designs Are Never Accidental – And They Never Look “Designed”
Perhaps even more than is the case with architecture itself, landscape architecture is a marriage of art and science. At Schmidt Associates, we offer an in-house team of talented landscape designers whose service mantra is simple: the best spaces make the best places.
True Landscape Architecture – A World Away From “Landscaping”
In our book, “Landscaping” has more to do with tidying and making good the site than with true landscape architecture. Our expert team and landscape design facilities cover the full spectrum of services, from site audits and liaison with key stakeholders through to planning and full project management and on to delivery. And we have experts on plants and planting. We know how to recreate landscapes so that new developments have a context and a setting that allow them to work with their environment and to enhance it immediately. We even offer “landscape architecture in the sky”, with rooftop planting providing a unique mix of restful environment as part of the workspace and a natural technology based way to deal with excessive rainfall.
All our experts in this area are committed to creating naturally beautiful spaces that harmonize with their surroundings. By skillfully incorporating elements of both architecture and ecology, we ensure that each space we create or enhance will see form meet function to create a striking visual balance.
From Plant Hire To Planting
From providing a setting for buildings through to creating the focal environment itself, our total landscape architecture service spans the complete range of our clients’ needs. Our landscape architects put their spatial creativity and specialist environmental knowledge to work for our clients. Working closely with key stakeholders, we will identify a landscape vision that is unique to each space and then we will apply art and science to turn it into reality. They know their job is complete when their creations are acknowledged as part of the landscape.
