PhilosophyShades of Green is a landscape architecture studio committed to promoting sustainable landscape practices through the creation of unique and innovative design solutions, integrating the landscape of humanity and nature for the benefit of both. We create designs with artistic and site-specific solutions by embracing both the natural and cultural contexts of the surrounding sites as well as any elements specific to the project site.
MissionWe are dedicated to the successful evolution of every project by combining solid design aesthetics with sustainable practices from concept through completion. We create landscapes that respond to and resonate with the user and the natural land, both of which are ultimately responsible for sustaining the site over time.
