About Us

Founded in 1982, our philosophy incorporates a “botanical garden” approach fused with the historic and classical formal garden design framework, creating exotic and thoughtful design solutions.

The elegance of classic gardens immersed in lush tropical foliage; the serenity of a garden; the intrigue of a secret jungle path; the splendor of a fountain; the grandeur of a formal vista… SMI is a landscape architectural design firm specializing in master planning, garden design, landscape preservation and restoration, botanical gardens/parks, civic and commercial master planning.

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.

The firm’s vision, coupled with staff expertise, places SMI in a unique position to have total quality control over the design, implementation and maintenance of detailed and context-sensitive design solutions.  We are located in the heart of beautiful downtown Palm Beach with clients throughout the United States and the Bahamas.
