13 grounds design is a boutique firm of landscape architects who have a history of excellence in design & planning
Our goal is to take the clients vision and offer a unique blend of honoring earth as well as connecting people to the environment.
13 Grounds Design focuses on providing a complete design process. A process that starts with a central concept that we mold into the details of the site and implement them. This results in a project that becomes a unique environment.
Our process requires collaboration with people from a variety of disciplines — financial market analysts, architects, interior designers, graphic designers, engineers and horticulturalists. This process allows us to respond to the opportunities and constraints of the site and craft the vision for the client.
Our work has taken us over many geographic boundaries with the purpose of providing quality places, bettering our environments, and creating positive influences within our communities.
We believe that no two projects are exactly alike and we strive to create unique “signature environments” achieved through careful attention to detailing and materials attuned to each client's vision.
