At Quinn Craughwell Landscape Architects, we dedicate ourselves to aesthetics. Aesthetics within the landscape are not just appearance - for a landscape must not only appeal to the senses, it must provide for the needs of a client and address the natural systems that are working within and surrounding every site. The combination of science, cultural values and universal laws of beauty intertwine seamlessly to create the aesthetic garden. We strive to adapt the personal experiences of each client into a designed landscape that is a source of renewal and respite while ensuring that each project contributes in part to a more sustainable and ecological community.

"Every time a garden is born, there is the hope that the world will be better by it..."
Francis and Hester, "The Meaning of Gardens"

We value the opportunity to work within a design team of related professionals, ensuring that each project has the most informed results possible. We carefully consider local context and history to root each landscape within its place. We plan for long term maintenance through the use of careful material selections and thoughtful construction techniques. We bring together a varied palette of theories and techniques to create gardens that are expressions of the architecture, client and region.
