Our team is always ready to answer your questions. Ready collaborate together?

Where do you work?

The majority of our built work is in southwest Florida and the Caribbean. However, when we have an opportunity to work with a client that’s interested in coastal adaptive landscape architecture, we occasionally take on those projects. If you you’d like to collaborate, go to work with us. Our design team will review and get back with you if the project is a good fit for our studio.

What services do you offer?

Coastal Vista Design is a landscape architect-forward studio. We work across scales, from site analysis and planning to site scale design. We collaborate frequently with teams including architects, civil engineers, and other design disciplines.

When is the right time to involve a landscape architect?

It’s never too early to get Coastal Vista Design involved. If you have a project that’s early in the planning stages, we can help connect you with the team of experts to help address your specific design challenges. Involving us early can help you capture the best opportunities of your site.

What about installation?

Coastal Vista Design provides coastal adaptive design services. We do not construct or install projects. We work with a network of contractors in our primary service area that we can recommend based on your project’s needs. We are happy to match our clients with the best contractors and installers for their projects. If you have trusted relationships, we are willing to work with your preferred contractors if their skills fit the proposed project.

Will you be involved through construction?

Construction administration is a specific set of services that we provide for select projects - see Construction Administration.

What about maintenance?

Our projects aren’t “plant it and forget it”. We expect active management for long-term success. All of our sites are designed for appropriate maintenance to achieve the project’s desired design function. If maintenance is a primary concern, we can incorporate that aspect early in the design process. We can provide management support with walkthroughs and maintenance manuals to give your landscape care team the autonomy to make on-the-fly decisions that support design intent.
