Richardson & Associates is a landscape architecture firm offering a full range of planning and design services of public and private project types throughout New England. Since 1991, we have completed over 700 projects addressing a spectrum of private, non-profit, and public projects of varying scopes and scales.

The firm’s interests lie in the potential held in the ways in which people connect to and find meaning in the landscape. The office maintains a small core of professionals interested in exploring this potential and committed to improving the relationships between people and places with excellence to the highest standards.

The places designed by Richardson & Associates are distinctive – rooted in the context in which they are located and reflective of the people who use them.

We have been fortunate to have our work recognized by both the local and national design communities.

Let’s connect and collaborate.
