Hoerr Schaudt is comprised of two studios: Design and Siteworks. We approach all our projects with the goal of seeing them built, a philosophy that guides us in developing strategies that are not only beautiful, but practical, functional, and cost-effective.
As the design team develops the overall vision for a project, a fluid conversation between vision and practicality begins. Siteworks — our internal quality control and implementation team then weighs in on buildability, budget, sourcing, planting design, and materials.
After a project is complete, our Continued Care program offers ongoing maintenance services to ensure our clients’ gardens evolve in a way that continues to delight.
Design is an aspirational
art; constantly evolving to challenge itself and stimulate change in the world
around us. We understand the power of design to enhance experiences and use
this knowledge to redefine conventional boundaries of style and scale to meet functional challenges posed by site and program.
Our design team is
responsible for balancing ambition with logic, beauty with performance, all the while listening closely to the nature of each context — architecture, site,
and client. The resulting landscapes are graceful interventions replete with
sensory delight and organizational logic.
Design without execution is
merely a beautiful idea. For a landscape to be successful it must be informed by
both an artisanal approach and a focus on craft; taking the conceptual and making
it real. Siteworks, our in-house team of implementation-focused landscape
architects and horticulturalists, orchestrate the construction of our projects
from concept to completion and beyond.
Their expertise in landscape construction
practices enable them to supervise all elements related to project delivery,
including design, budgeting, construction detailing, and site supervision. It
is this enhanced attention to detail throughout the process that ensures the
success of our work.
Gardens are dynamic and change over time. They grow and mature, they go dormant, and awaken, they endure the wear and tear of people and the environment. Much of the artistry of a landscape lay in its evolution; how it is cared for and chooses to grow. We strive to create landscapes that will thrive and stand the test of time but understand that gardens require ongoing care that is informed by the vision of the design.
We take pride in creating spaces with enduring beauty. Through our Continued Care program, we help our clients by developing maintenance regimens and providing ongoing supervision and design guidance that protects the financial and emotional investment they have made in their landscapes. Our team has a depth of expertise in horticulture and plant curation that is unparalleled in the industry and leverages this knowledge to ensure our landscapes delight in perpetuity.
