When we improve our surroundings, we transform ourselves.

Groundwork Studio’s goal is to explore the full potential of landscape architecture and planning though a contextual approach to urban design, economic and ecological resilience, community engagement, functionality and context-sensitive design. We specialize in civic, recreational, and educational environments, facilitating understanding of interconnections through safe, accessible, and interactive design for all ages.

Our services include urban design and planning, creative placemaking, landscape integration, and regionally appropriate planting, soil building, and irrigation design. To maintain a high level of quality and cost control, our standard practice includes efficiency in design fees, complete and accurate construction documents, cost estimating, and proactive construction observation.

We approach design as a living, breathing, collaborative process, a transformative progression for the design team and stakeholders as well as the project site. Our active involvement in community organizations and events gives us the opportunity to cross-pollinate ideas, connecting us with experts in the region, and evolving our practice.
