Garden design has played a vital role in our history, culture, and quality of life. While garden design was once viewed in light of the "art" of design, contemporary practice expands the discipline, mediating between nature and culture. At Environs Design Studio, our work balances the aesthetics and productivity of a garden with long-term management, and resilience considerations. Enhanced biodiversity, stormwater management, and wildlife habitat are core to our goal of developing sustainable gardens and landscapes.
