As a fundamental element of cultural expression, the designed landscape provides an enduring record of the complex interplay of culture and nature. Groundworks Landscape Architecture strives to create evocative spaces that heighten our awareness of our natural surroundings while fostering the connection between people, nature and the built environment.

Established in 2006, Groundworks is a full service landscape design firm based in Falmouth, Massachusetts. We collaborate closely with a wide range of clients and design professionals to create elegant, well-crafted landscape designs for residential, institutional and mixed-use projects. Our projects range in size from small private gardens to full scale master plans.

With significant professional experience, Groundworks enjoys working at the intersection of ecology, cultural context, and individual priorities to develop carefully informed design strategies that respect budgetary constraints and the inherent characteristics of a site. While each project represents a unique response to a particular set of environmental and social conditions, all of our work involves innovative design solutions, a high regard for craft, and a simple, elegant aesthetic. This design aesthetic is characterized by a strong sense of spatial clarity, careful consideration of relationships of scale, and an overall emphasis on form and structure within a site.
