Landscape Architecture

MK’s landscape architecture services use and enhance the natural shape and characteristics of the environment. We see every property as a canvas from which our team develops a beautiful and functional landscape design. MK provides landscape designs and plant material recommendations that consider budget, maintenance, and the unique layout of your property. We are also able to assess and adapt to the natural resources of any site.

Our Unique Approach

Our landscape architecture provides high-quality planting plans for projects and campuses, incorporating the beauty of a thoughtfully designed landscape into the local regulatory requirements of a project. We seek to understand the intent and constraints of a site to create designs which honor the natural environment and context and work with the site engineering involved to maximize the potential of the property. We create creative, practical, functional, and sustainable landscape designs that will integrate a new project into the fabric of the existing context.
