In our practice, we view the landscape through many different lenses to better comprehend the intrinsic character of place.  Beyond the planning of landscapes for construction, we combine high tech mapping tools with onsite exploration to understand the potential impacts of our interventions.  We observe the planting materials and understand the movement of water and how we can best protect the life sustaining qualities of the soil.  The experiential qualities of the place, whether urban, wild forest that can be reinterpreted in a new context.
