Landscape Architecture

An example of Landscape Architecture in a garden area with benches.

Your land tells a story. We know how to read it.

Landscape architecture is more than just putting trees in the ground and flowers around a particular site for our clients. At FCE, being able to effectively understand site conditions is key to designing successful projects. Only then can our fully staffed landscape architects and engineers begin planning and designing in earnest. Our team consists of individuals with extensive private and public-sector experience. This experience allows us to deliver unique problem-solving approaches to land design, entitlements, and project implementation strategies. We listen and respond to our clients as much as we design. In doing so, we are able to achieve an optimal blend of sustainable landscape architecture through defined opportunities and constraints of development.

“Service must precede art since all turf, trees, flowers, fences, walks, water, paint, plaster, posts and pillars in or under which there is not a purpose of direct utility or service are inartistic if not barbarous.”

― Frederick Law Olmstead Sr., Father of American Landscape Architecture
