Weston & Sampson’s landscape architects and urban designers have consciously chosen to focus their careers on creating landscapes that improve quality of life. From conceptual design and grant-writing assistance through community engagement to final construction documentation and construction oversight, our team focuses on design excellence while understanding the importance of long-term project resilience.

As an integral part of an interdisciplinary company, our landscape architects have access to in-house resiliency, civil, structural, and infrastructure engineers; environmental site professionals; stormwater experts; and scientists. These collaborative and comprehensive team capabilities enable our designers to produce creative and innovative open spaces that are technically sound and constructible, and that will stand the tests of climate change and sea level rise.

Weston & Sampson’s designers use sustainable design strategies and materials in sophisticated ways to support their work in park and recreation designs, historical and environmental restorations, and the adaptive reuse of post-industrial Brownfields properties and landfills. All of our designs follow universal and inclusive principles to ensure accessibility and eligibility for federal, state, and local matching grants.
