Landscape Architecture and Arboriculture

B. Thayer Associates landscape architects apply in-depth understanding of the natural environment, as well as urban site complexities, to plan and design a wide variety of public and private spaces. We take into consideration the influence exerted by climate and the relationships of soils, plants, water and building materials to create a landscape that meets project goals, while creating healthy and sustainable environments. Resilient design involves balancing hard and soft surfaces, appropriate selection of construction and plant materials and development of site-specific landscape design vocabularies. Our team of landscape architects are all certified arborists through the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). In addition, they hold relevant industry certifications, including LEED, Green Roof Professionals and Envision Sustainability Professionals.
