Viridian Landscape Studio™ heals ecosystems while making beautiful places for people. 

Our Philosophy

For more than 20 years, Viridian has been designing resilient landscapes that enrich the built and natural environments. Our approach is rooted in a deep understanding of green infrastructure, a passion for native vegetation, and a belief that everyone should have access to beautiful landscapes — regardless of age, income, or ability.


From pocket parks to college campuses to regional master plans, our work balances practical solutions with lyrical design. By considering issues like flood control and soil remediation alongside strategies for inclusive and impactful placemaking, we help clients realize their goals while uplifting communities. When we restore native landscapes, native landscapes restore us. 


Viridian partners with developers, architects, institutions, and local governments to create enduring landscapes for living, learning, playing, and healing. Through professional partnerships, we leverage our unique abilities and resources to create resilient spaces and places that have the power to heal ecosystems and build communities. We work closely with our partners at every stage of the development process, and equip our clients with the knowledge and tools to continue their stewardship long into the future. 


In addition to landscape architecture and ecological master planning, Viridian's services include construction documentation and administration, post-occupancy evaluations, and land stewardship education. Viridian Landscape Studio Ltd. is a Certified Women's Business Enterprise (WBE) and Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE), registered with the Council of Landscape Architectural Registration Boards (CLARB) in the states of Maryland, Massachusetts, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
