We are a small landscape architecture firm specializing in custom residential site design, master planning, and garden design. We also work on schools, playgrounds, and small commercial and private projects. We propose water efficiency through water catchment systems, green roofs, efficient irrigation, drought tolerant and native plant communities, and specifying weather based controllers. We develop living soils, erosion control and soils stabilization strategies, specify renewable, recycled, and local materials with cradle to grave products when possible. Landscapes are designed to have no chemical fertilizer or pest management necessary. We develop plant communities that encourage the growth of wildlife and habitat. We believe in the power of design and beauty, and imagination and meaning. Our design language integrates with the architecture, the site, and our clients values and lifestyles.
We have completed 9 green projects in the last 3 years. One recent home in San Anselmo we used pavers with recycled material, porous paving, drip irrigation, a weather based controller, willow fencing, and minimal low voltage landscape lighting. All plants were native or drought tolerant. Our first green project was completed in 2003. Jeff McLane is LEED AP accrdited. We are members of the US Green Building Council, Architects, Planners, and Designers for Social Responsibility, and the American Association of Landscape Architects. These are the three most influential organizations for landscape architects relating to green building.
