Landscape Architecture

At GradyMinor we begin every landscape architectural or urban design project by listening to our clients’ needs and by taking the time to get to know each project so that we can deliver a product that exceeds expectations. We respond to design challenges with contemporary and forward thinking ideas and solutions. Our designs are inspirational, and assist in creating community and commercial value.

Landscape architecture is vital to the design of outdoor public areas, landmarks, and structures to achieve environmental, social-behavioral, and aesthetic outcomes. For every project, GradyMinor’s landscape architecture and planning team believes in systematically investigating the existing social, ecological, and geological conditions of a site to design the most economical landscape and irrigation systems to produce the desired final product.

Our extensive local commercial, residential, and public landscape design experience includes:

  • Conceptual Landscape Designs
  • Creating and Implementing Development Standards
  • Pre-Design Reports and Alternative Studies
  • 3D Modeling, Rendering, and Flythrough
  • Streetscape Design
  • Hardscape Design
  • Irrigation Design
  • Detailed Planting Plans
  • Construction Plan and Specification Development
  • Construction Inspection
In addition, we have extensive experience in construction contract bidding and negotiations, project permitting, construction contract administration and inspection and project start-up and follow-up services.

We work on both private and public projects for multi-family, institutional, and residential use and can create aesthetically pleasing and water conserving Xeriscaping to provide a sustainable garden landscape. GradyMinor has extensive and diverse project experience and we are committed to providing customer-focused service to clients on all projects – large and small.
