Landscape Architecture

MSA is no longer offering these services with in-house staff; however, our Project Managers will be happy to coordinate and manage the subcontracting of these services. Ask your MSA Project Manager to recommend a professional, or we will work with the consultant of your choosing. A redesign of our website is underway to address these changes in our business operations.

The art of landscape architecture is in carefully balancing what nature has already created with man’s vision for the land.

Designs can encompass “hardscaping” or “streetscaping” with elements such as signage, walkways, decorative planters, litter receptacles, lighting, foundations, seating, bicycle racks, and other outdoor enhancements. We can also utilize “bayscape” designs, which naturalize waterfront properties with native plants.

Intelligent landscape plans can reduce radiant heat and stormwater runoff. They can also work to enhance entrances and even deter criminal activity. When properly designed, installed, and maintained, landscape architecture increases the value of real estate and creates an inviting atmosphere.
