NC landscape architects participate in the careful stewardship, wise planning, and artful design of a wide variety of natural environments. Projects are designed and planned for the slopes of the mountains, the rolling hills of the Piedmont, as well as the sandy shores of the coastal lands.


Our Mission

Landscape architects lead the stewardship, planning, and design of our built and natural environments. 

The Society's mission is to advance landscape architecture through advocacy, communication, education, and fellowship.

I don’t divide architecture, landscape, and gardening; to me they are one.
— Luis Barragan, Mexican Architect
