Landscape Architecture

Landscape architecture is a broad profession that is still unknown to much of the general public. It is not simply gardening or landscaping, but the design of indoor and outdoor environments involving elements of art, environment, architecture, engineering and sociology.[1]

GREENLAND® offers full-service landscape architecture design, project management, construction administration, and inspection services. The design philosophy of our landscape architecture team is based on the three pillars of sustainability – cultural, environmental and economic sustainability. We work to create designs that are holistic, cohesive and balance the needs of the Client with the necessity to sustain the quality of environmental systems.

Our services include:

  • Landscape master planning;
  • Waterfront and open space planning;
  • Multi-use trail design;
  • Streetscape design;
  • Commercial and institutional landscape design;
  • Schoolyard and playground design;
  • Tree inventory and preservation planning;
  • Stormwater management facility planting design;
  • Shoreline and channel restoration planning;
  • Rural and urban residential estates;
  • Low impact design – rain gardens, bioretention cells, vegetated filter strips, and permeable pavement; and,

Client Testimonials

Muskoka Watershed Council

The Muskoka Watershed Council’s mission is to champion watershed health in those watersheds that flow into and through the District Municipality of Muskoka. There is no conservation authority in Muskoka, instead the Council is a volunteer-based organization supported by the District of Muskoka, local consulting firms, and local Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry and Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change offices.

The Muskoka Watershed Council is currently undertaking a project to understand the potential impact of climate change in Muskoka to the year 2050. In working with our municipal partners, decision support tools such as Greenland’s new CANWET-5 model could be useful in informing our watershed management planning decisions in relation to policy development, stewardship priorities and education and communication programs.

Communitech

The Greenland Group (Greenland) was introduced to Communitech in 2013. This letter is to acknowledge the importance of this proactive joint venture and to indicate our strong interest in future project partnerships with Greenland and other network members.

Greenland is now supporting other joint initiatives with Communitech. These leading-edge information technology partners will include other private sector members with the Communitech network, as well as Ontario government agencies and First Nation communities. These projects are intended to develop commercialized products and services involving the Greenland Group and other Communitech partners and to enable new Canada-wide related collaborations.

Mark, if any your prospective clients or contacts have questions regarding our collaborative efforts to date, ongoing discussions and project leveraging capabilities, the Communitech team would be more than happy to help.

Landrex

Landrex is currently working with Greenland and business partner, Clearflow Group, to develop strategies to improve the functionality of stormwater management facilities in Landrex's (ie the City's) existing and future communities in North St. Albert, namely within the Erin Ridge North neighbourhood.

Landrex has been impressed with the collaborative and innovative approach that Clearflow and Greenland provide; they are a solutions-based group that are tremendously attentive, responsive and client focused. We believe they would be an extremely valued partner to the City of Saint Albert and represent the qualified, licensed, and professional consulting firm that the City so seeks.
