Landscape Architectural services
Civil Site Group has a diverse portfolio of Landscape Architectural projects that showcase a deep understanding and appreciation for creative landscape planning and overall site placemaking. Our primary goal is to ensure that a project's proposed landscape infrastructure fits within the context of its site, programmatic and regulatory goals, while enhancing its surrounding environment and enabling adjacent communities and future developments to prosper. From how vehicles and people interact with a site to highlighting a site’s unique features or natural viewsheds, our professional landscape architectural staff helps to refine the overall design effort and ultimately elevate the end user's interaction with the built project.
planning & programMing
Our preliminary design efforts focus on planning and programming a site. This involves ownership and stakeholder discussions aimed at defining the overarching goals and desired functions of the project where we investigate each project’s local community and regional guidelines, ensuring that our proposed landscape infrastructure fits within the context of the site and enhances its surrounding environment. These early considerations become a layered framework of specific uses and operating parameters for a given project, that continue to inform nearly every design decision moving forward. Planning and programming activities may include:
- COMPREHENSIVE / MASTERPLANS (PRIVATE, PUBLIC)
- GREEN INFRASTRUCTURE PLANNING
- PARK/PLAZA DESIGNS (NEIGHBORHOOD, COMMUNITY)
- GRAPHIC PRODUCTION / COLORED SITE RENDERINGS
- FURNITURE AND MATERIAL SELECTION
urban DESIGN & dEVELOPMENT
Weaving new building projects into the fabric of an existing community or urban landscape can be a complex and challenging process. It requires close collaboration across multiple design and regulatory disciplines. Factors like economic, environmental, and social inclusivity are often factored into these design decisions, which play an important role in creating robust, interconnected urban spaces. Civil Site Group's goal is to create meaningful areas for public/private use within the community, while still achieving development and stakeholder market objectives.

site planning & Landscape design
Unique to Civil Site Group’s design process, is the collaboration between our civil and landscape professionals when creating traditional submittal document packages. The partnership between these disciplines ensures that a final design integrates the priorities of both civil and landscape architects and helps to determine the best possible layout for a site. Understanding how to integrate a site’s unique features into a well-informed site plan necessitates creating a balance between landscape design objectives and traditional civil engineering considerations. This synergy of design and engineering is what makes our site planning distinct and effective.
