 Your Project = Preliminary Planning/Zoning + Site Design + Construction
We’re enhancing the time-honored land planning and design our clients expect,
improving the design of your site, and refining your stormwater compliance design.

for Developers
We already have relationships with municipal agencies, and know the process.

HG Design Studio understands time value to money and tight margins. Since we expanded our services from landscape architecture to civil engineering, the value to our clients has increased. We have built long-standing municipal relationships, and we are familiar with the process at each county/city in the region. But what makes us unique is our ability to turn average stormwater solutions into stunning landscape design. Our schematic designs actually translate into buildable, beautiful sites.
