Landscape Architecture

Dudek’s landscape architects design ecologically based places using our in-depth understanding of science and design and through effective public outreach. We provide creative, engaging, low-maintenance, cost-effective landscape architecture solutions considering environmental systems, ecological principles, public agency regulations, and sustainable design.

Landscape Design that Combines Restoration and Recreation

Our team creates projects that combine active and passive recreation with habitat restoration to help you meet the needs of your stakeholders while reducing environmental mitigation costs and project timelines. We are passionate about projects that combine parks, open space, and trails with habitat restoration, and we incorporate habitat restoration, interpretive education, native plants, water conservation, and nature-themed play into our designs. Our project experience spans sensitive habitats such as riparian woodlands and wetlands and includes trail and open space recreation; habitat restoration; streetscapes; natural resources management; and interpretative educational materials.

Blending Science, Design, and Community Outreach

Our approach blends the science of hydrology, ecology, and restoration with the design of open space, and successful public outreach to create healthy, ecologically robust habitats and enriching, engaging places for passive recreation and education. Our landscape architects and ecologists plan, design, and implement projects, using their expertise to take projects from conception through post-construction monitoring. We work closely with our biologists, botanists, hydrologists, geomorphologists, civil engineers, permitting specialists, urban and environmental planners, and visual storytellers to develop designs that enhance habitat while providing public access.
