LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE

Weston & Sampson fosters a staff of creative landscape architects who have consciously chosen to focus their careers on landscapes that improve quality of life.  From conceptual design and grant-writing assistance through the community participation process to final construction oversight, our design team focuses on design excellence while understanding the importance of long-term project viability.  As an integral part of an interdisciplinary company, our landscape architects have access to our civil, structural, and infrastructure engineers, environmental site professionals, and stormwater experts. These collaborative teaming capabilities enable our designers to produce creative and innovative open spaces that are technically sound through construction and will stand the test of time. Weston & Sampson’s designers are capable of using sustainable design strategies and materials in sophisticated ways to support their work in park and recreation design, historical and environmental restoration, the adaptive reuse of post-industrial Brownfields properties and landfills. All of our designs ensure Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility and eligibility for federal, state, and local matching grants.
