At Earthworks Landscape Architects our approach to design is linked to in depth understanding of social and ecological processes on the site.

We strive to create unique places that respond to the needs and qualities associated with their locations and end users.

The methodology that we undertake is attached to these values and follows from site analysis, conceptual inception and overall layout design simultaneous to detail design development. This process is organic and non-linear, with often a back and forth momentum that allows for increasing knowledge of the issues at hand as well as a refinement of the design expression aligned with the clients’ vision.

Our services include the design of urban parks, nature reserves, hotel landscapes and municipal resorts, urban landscapes ie squares and streetscapes, commercial development landscapes, play parks, sports fields, skate parks, visual impact assessments and environmental planning.

We strive to achieve a balance between human needs and nature through sensitive design on all our projects.
