    Reimagined   Invigorated for Green Site Sustain-ability

    Sites composed by MVR since 1997 through Site Plan projects at A/E offices integrate modern buildings, busy roads, linear geometry, and parking lots with a maturing plan of canopy trees needed for approvals and site sustainability.

    Distinct treescapes resulted from no-frills design & knowing resilient tree species since 1987. Strategies for site success:

  • Effective site-specific massings of robust canopy trees, with imaginative contrasts at key entry points.
  • Groomed existing trees; scenic evergreen screening.
  • Strong connection to building architecture; site structure made legible by trees and resilient low plantings.

    Demonstrated by mvr School Sites, sites with modest budgets can posess a strong identity and an immediate 'sense of place’- to inspire, provide shaded comfort, and be sustain able far into the future.

    The rural flavor of Landscape Gardens in our Portfolio (Bakwin Garden above) dates from 1700’s English Gardens and the 1800’s in the Hudson Valley. By 1900, they became widespread...

    and smaller onneighborhood yards as in Riverdale, NY. From there we provide landscape design services for The Bronx, Westchester County, the Hudson Valley 'Line' Landscape region, & southern New England (N.E.).

    SPL addresses provided for view on Google or Bing Maps.

    For AE Site Plan projects as Landscape Architect subconsultant we deliver thorough analyses, design, and impactful site plantings-- on budget and specified to last. Take a moment to 'fly to' a few well-established examples.
