We believe that when environment, art, community and economics are combined in harmony with the dictates of the land and needs of society, magical places result, places that lift the spirit, sustainable places of beauty, significance and quality.
We are dedicated to designing extraordinary landscapes that leave a legacy for future generations, creating such places for our clients, for society and for the well-being of our planet.
DW Legacy Design® Values
DW Legacy Design® is a comprehensive approach based in four elements which encompass the traditional elements of landscape architecture (art and environment), but also include community and economics. These four values broaden the more traditional concept of triple bottom-line accounting by including art or aesthetics as essential to human meaning.
DW Legacy Design® acknowledges the temporal character of design and the idea that such work should endure and sustain itself over a long period of time. The idea is symbolized by four overlapping circles, one for each element. The center of these rings, where the four are in balance, is the ideal profile for a project. If the work begins with a heavy emphasis on one element, the process seeks to move it as close to the center as possible.
