People. Purpose. Place.

The LA Group is consistently noted for our strong work ethic, positive attitude, and collaborative approach to problem-solving. The team keeps details in order and projects on track, always delivering a straight story about our winding paths. The firm’s reputation for excellence precedes them up mountain peaks, across campuses, and down historic main streets as they design places of prestige that create or enhance cityscapes, waterfronts, campuses, and regional and national landmarks.

The LA Group also takes fun seriously. Whether it’s a perfect day at your favorite resort, a record drive on a historic golf course, or a game of Frisbee on your campus green, the firm’s projects shape experiences that leave lasting impressions.

And when it comes to honoring those who have served in the armed forces, The LA Group stands proudly among the best landscape designers in the United States, creating national and state cemeteries that bestow dignity and instill veneration.

Community involvement is the focus and foundation of The LA Group’s culture. The firm’s causes come from its core and the passions of its people because a dedicated team makes the biggest difference. The LA Group understands community. Without it, they wouldn’t be where they are. Giving back isn’t only the right thing to do, it’s the most effective way to sustain the places the team lives in and loves.

The LA Group has assisted nonprofits by providing design services, site studies and evaluations, fundraising support, and staff volunteering since its foundation. It was also one of the first firms in Upstate New York to join The 1% Program, launched by Public Architecture in 2005. Through the program, The LA Group has provided thousands of hours to nonprofit organizations in need of design assistance.
