Landscape Architecture & Site Planning

Site planning, in simplest terms, is optimizing a piece of land for its intended purpose and requires the ability to (1) view a project through the lens of a systems analyst from ten - thousand feet, (2) think several steps ahead, thereby identifying and eliminating potential issues before they become costly mistakes, and (3) apply value engineering across all systems in order to maximize desired results while minimizing the consumption of resources. The resulting landscape forms a dialogue between built and natural interests by creating beautiful spaces for human enjoyment that have little or no impact on native ecological systems. This philosophy is at the core of sustainable practices and is critical for the successful stewardship of our planet. With regard to site planning, the following adage is apropos: if you fail to plan, you should plan to fail.
