People. Purpose. Place.

Since 1974, The LA Group has helped to shape experiences through landscape architecture and engineering that creates space for life and community; family and friendship. Our staff of landscape architects, civil engineers and environmental scientists boasts a robust resume in public space and government projects, resort and commercial development and campus planning and design.

Strategic Design. Expert Integration.

Through practical creativity we blend history, culture and ecology, aligning what is best for the land with a skillful application of the intricate laws and regulations that govern development.

We take clients from environmental analysis and land planning to comprehensive landscape designs, walking projects seamlessly through complex permitting and approvals to completed places.

From our headquarters in Saratoga Springs and our office in Ithaca, New York, our impact extends from the Adirondack Park and New York State, throughout the Northeast and around the United States through extensive work with the US Department of Veterans Affairs and National Park Service.

Balance beauty with science.

“The LA Group’s patience and concern for each voice in the APRAP process was remarkable.”

– Bradford G. Dake, Chairman of APRAP

“The LA Group was at the literal and figurative foundation of the project; without their insight and ability to share the vision – the project would not have realized the client’s dreams and expectations.”

– Equicurean Magazine 2010, Fasig-Tipton Saratoga
