Landscape Architecture
& Ecology

Landscape architects and designers at NSD bring a unique perspective to the firm helping NSD to achieve a successful and distinctive blend of science and design in our projects. The result of this interdisciplinary approach is a better integration of physical processes, ecology, and aesthetics. NSD’s landscape architects bring strong plant knowledge, help with the creation of elegant transitions from the natural to the built environment, and carefully consider ecological function as well as how people might engage with the space. Our landscape architects provide a full range of services including visioning and conceptual design development, stamped construction documents, specifications, costs, tailored native planting designs, and project management. Our designers are also skilled in visual communication techniques and are able to create rendered graphics or diagrams to support visionary ideas or drafted plans depending on the client’s needs.
