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,

As Public Works Chair for the Town of Collingwood, I would like to thank Greenland for providing exemplary services for the Raglan Street Local Improvement Project, including preliminary & detailed designs; coordination of all consultants; contract administration; and, construction inspection.

Greenland always maintained open lines of communication between the Town, Contractors, affected business and residents, and promptly responded to all questions and issues raised by the public. For the past decade, your firm has worked for the Town and strived for thoroughness and professionalism in order to address all of the Town’s project needs.

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.
