Landscape Architecture Design

L/KLA brings sensitivity to the design and interpretation of place, whether public or private. The firm’s body of work, developed over the last twenty plus years, incorporates projects of all scales and under many different forms of ownership and control. Public interest work is the firm's core, with the majority of projects completed for the public sector and for nonprofits.

From public parks and natural areas to miles of trails, greenways and scenic byways, L/KLA is experienced in making the most of limited resources in a sustainable and economically responsible manner.
