A Full-Service Landscape Architecture Firm

Terra’s team of landscape architects, designers, and collaborators provide a full range of services which offer customized solutions for every project. Our commissions focus upon teaching landscapes and include a mix of large and small public gardens, university landscapes, cultural institutions, and child-focused spaces within elementary school settings. It is our practice to listen carefully to the contextual story of every site so that the resulting creation is unique and embraced by its community and stakeholders.

We are best known for our master plans and full-service designs, from schematic design through construction administration. Our decades of experience across a wide platform of institutions has also taught us firsthand the importance of earned income opportunities. Beyond design, we bring an insight for financial sustainability to every project. Terra is often also asked to provide fundraising support, from project narratives and evocative graphics to sophisticated and complete donor brochures.

At Terra, we believe there is strength in numbers, and we will custom build a team to uniquely serve your project and its vision. Our national practice has connected us to respected and specialized collaborators who strengthen our services through their architectural, interpretive planning, strategic planning, lighting design, water feature design, and engineering support. Over the years we have also formed friendships with a national pool of early childhood educators, cultural institution leaders, naturalists and horticulturists, all of whom we can still rely on for their knowledge, insight, and experience.
