Landscape Architecture

Terrawest Conservancy is exceptionally positioned to utilize the knowledge of our ecologists, botanists, terrestrial biologists, aquatic biologists, CEQA/NEPA specialists, and water resource engineers to understand the science of our natural processes so that we can bio-mimic these processes in our design projects. Having a comprehensive understanding of the ecological processes allows our team to not only create aesthetically beautiful designs, but ecologically functional at the same time. The balance of form and function allows our design projects to thrive through natural regenerative and sustainable processes.

Our team of landscape architects, Clean Water Act specialists, biological resource specialists, and revegetation specialists work with each other to develop a well-rounded understanding of past and present site conditions. They target restoration planning, implementation, and maintenance activities to create ecologically sound and sustainable sites.

Together, they develop plans that can help reform the land, address drainage issues, restore wetlands and habitat; address removal of exotic, invasive, and/or noxious plants; and revegetate an area to help restore it to more natural conditions. Guided by their strong knowledge of applicable regulatory requirements, we target restoration planning, implementation, and maintenance activities to create ecologically sound and sustainable sites.

Terrawest Conservancy is able to plan, manage, and monitor the effectiveness of restoration projects. At the same time our team of environmental consultants are helping our clients meet compliance requirements, they are actively looking for ways to reduce overall maintenance commitments. Our site restoration specialists develop best management practices for native plant relocation and revegetation techniques, as well as provide noxious and invasive weed management.
