Landscape Architecture

Our landscape architects are responsible for the overall design of project sites. They establish drainage and grading, integrate indoor architectural design with outdoor landscaping, and create open-air spaces through plantings, paving patterns, walkways, and trails. Keeping with TESSERE's tradition of sustainable design, these team members focus on decreased water use paired with increased use of natural materials and implementation of conservation features such as rain gardens, recycled-water irrigation, and drought-resistant and native plantings.

Master Planning

Our experience has taught us that if we spend the time to gather all available information and listen to our clients’ needs, the stage will be set for project success. Through our master planning process, we enable the architect and client to develop a comprehensive strategy for the future development of the client’s land, building complex, and other facilities. We work to eliminate the unexpected at the onset of projects and to provide a design that supports the permitting and construction process, keeping clients informed throughout the process.
