Landscape Designer/Architect Recommendation

aniam(6bPA)July 4, 2012


I am looking for recommendations for landscape architects/designers in Philadelphia. I am particularly interested in professionals who specialize in designing urban gardens (with all the space and light limitations urban conditions tend to offer...).

Many thanks for your insights.

It is difficult to obtain meaningful referrals from a forum that essentially has a world-wide audience :-)

My suggestion is to contact your local chapter of the ALPD (Association of Professional Landscape Designers). This is the closest thing to a nation-wide certification program for landscape designers and there are many highly talented designers that are members. I've attached a link that you can search for individuals by zip code.

As when hiring any professional, you will want to interview with respect to aesthetic compatability, ability to communicate easily and scope and acknowledgement of finished work, either via a portfolio or viewing actual properties.
