Perhaps one of the smartest things you can do when first considering a new construction or renovation project is to call a Landscape Architect. Landscape Architects bring a unique perspective to the project design team. They look at the practical constraints of a project while also viewing it with an artist’s eye. They are uniquely trained to integrate the Engineering and Architectural requirements of a project into a pleasing harmony of form and function. This can have a profound effect bringing the finished product to a higher level of excellence.
Far too often, a Landscape Architect is not brought in until late in the building process, when opportunities may have already been missed.
John R. Conte owner of Conte & Conte, LLC in Greenwich, CT emphasizes the importance of this. “Landscape architects are of key importance when assessing structures, roads, and landscape elements so they have most aesthetically pleasing relationship to the land around them. The ultimate goal is to create harmony between land and structure while respecting the natural setting.”
