Landscape Architecture

Landscape Architecture

Our landscape architects design projects in a way that is in concert with their natural surroundings, ensuring that the environmental footprint is minimized, to the greatest extent practicable. HW design professionals combine their knowledge of civil and environmental engineering with their landscape architecture skills to generate innovative, environmentally sound, and cost-effective designs that are implemented with success. Complementing this knowledge base, our team is skilled in providing innovative, ecologically sensitive landscape design that integrates low impact development techniques, such as alternative approaches to stormwater management systems, and erosion and sediment control.

Our innovative designs are often a key component in implementing the guidelines that we develop to achieve smart growth developments and communities, such as the 2010 Rhode Island Stormwater Manual Update and LID Guidance Handbook, the Massachusetts Smart Growth/ Smart Energy Toolkit, and several stormwater, LID, and erosion and sediment control guidance documents. These documents provide comprehensive guides for municipalities and developers for the design and implementation of Smart Growth strategies and techniques.
