According to the American Society of Landscape Architects:
Landscape architects analyze, plan, design, manage, and nurture the built and natural environments. Landscape architects have a significant impact on communities and quality of life. They design parks, campuses, streetscapes, trails, plazas, and other projects that help define a community.
As we are all very used to this year, this post will start out as a mostly unorganized dump of information and images. I’ll eventually come back and try to put things in some order later (next year?) but let’s take a look at what we have:
Landscape Architecture Studios
- June Scott Design: A local Southern California firm. The image at the top of this post is from this company. The link leads to a portfolio of residential work.
- MEP Designs: A Canadian design firm. The link will lead to their projects page and from there you can open up individual galleries that feature many public space designs.

The next video is a PR film from a British firm:
The next two are youtube embeds from the San Francisco Academy of Art University:
Here we have the most local video:
Landscape Architecture drawings could include site plans, elevation views, perspective drawings, and range from rough sketches to carefully finished presentation work.
