Landscape Architecture


Design is "where the magic happens"

You've generated your wish list, reflected on your needs and  expectations, tossed around ideas and imagined possibilities. You have a vague vision of your landscape-to-be, but the scale, materials and finishes are sketchy, and you are not even sure what is feasible given your site, by-laws and budget.  


Astute consumers understand the immense value of a professional design service to help bring landscape visions into focus. With inspired creativity and a commitment to ecological sustainability, Genus Loci will listen to your story, assess site opportunities and constraints, consider design possibilities and alternatives, and draw up concepts and details that suit you and your lifestyle, site and budget.  We'll identify and resolve site complications BEFORE ground is broken. And in the end, we will generate all the working drawings needed to ensure clarity and peace of mind during the construction process.
