An internet search for Landscape Design in the Buffalo area produces hundreds of results. Upon further investigation, the majority of these results are simply landscape companies, most of which also provide 'design services.' Landscape Architecture goes beyond design, and takes into account many factors that could be overlooked by a landscaper or designer.
A sound design is great when it comes to construction, but if it lacks creativity and provides a cookie cutter solution, then there is definite room for improvement. An elaborate design showcasing many unique features can please a client, but if it doesn't take into account certain site constraints or practical construction practices, then all that's left is a pretty picture.
At Stone Landscape Architecture, PLLC we create unique design solutions that harmonize with existing natural elements. We also keep in mind the reality that this design will need to be built, and we design for that reality.
What Stone Landscape Architecture Can Do For You
Stone's diverse experience with a wide range of projects and clients, and our partnership with A-1 Land Care Inc., provides you with a complete package from project inception through the final stages of construction. At Stone Landscape Architecture, PLLC, we specialize in residential design, but also have experience in the public sector with projects such as parks and recreation master planning, small scale urban planning, and streetscape design. We also have experience completing DEC Stormwater Pollution Protection Plan (SWPPP) inspections for contractors in Western New York. All public site development in New York State in excess of 1 acre requires a SWPPP to be developed as part of the construction documents. Each SWPPP requires weekly site inspections by a qualified professional, and a Registered Landscape Architect is one of these qualified professionals.
Stone Landscape Architecture, PLLC can also facilitate the transition from design to construction by acting as a construction administrator to oversee the construction process and ensure the plans are executed properly. In our experience, once the design phase is complete, there is a tendency for issues to arise between the landscape architect and the contractor. Our partnership with A-1 Land Care Inc. can offer competitive bid pricing and a seamless transition between design and construction. Both Stone and A-1 are incredibly customer-focused and work very hard to ensure that any issue that may arise during any stage of the project are dealt with as quickly as possible.
Our goal is total client satisfaction from start to finish.
