About Us

SMI is a landscape architectural design firm specializing in estate master planning as well as residential, civic and commercial master planning. The scope of the firm encompasses public spaces such as botanical gardens, parks, campuses and streetscapes as well as private spaces. Our field of concentration often incorporates landscape preservation and restoration. 

Founded in 1982, our philosophy incorporates a “botanical garden” approach fused with the historic and classical garden design framework, creating exotic and thoughtful design solutions.
Today the firm has refined its staff and services to encompass complex projects utilizing employees with diverse design and consulting skills, including garden designers, landscape architects, site planners, construction managers and project managers.
