Based in Richmond, Virginia, HG Design Studio is a civil engineering, land planning and landscape architectural firm with a rich history in the Commonwealth. From our modest foundation more than 60 years ago to our modern day position as an industry leader, one thing hasn’t changed – our commitment to providing beautiful, functional, affordable design.

Today, the HG Design Studio site design approach combines the best of landscape architecture and civil engineering, without sacrificing constructability. An important part of this process includes producing drawings that bridge the gap between design and construction. 
Good site engineering doesn’t have to be unattractive in order to comply with stormwater regulations. Our clients look to us to transform their BMP from an often unsightly but necessary ditch to a site feature with aesthetic elements. Unlike typical engineering firms, HG Design Studio draws upon a decades-long culture of tasteful landscape architectural design to influence our civil engineering solutions, relying on seasoned professionals for competent site transformations.
