"Landscape architecture is the profession which applies artistic and scientific principles to the research, planning, design and management of both natural and built environments. Practitioners of this profession apply creative and technical skills and scientific, cultural and political knowledge in the planned arrangement of natural and constructed elements on the land with a concern for the stewardship and conservation of natural, constructed and human resources. The resulting environments shall serve useful, aesthetic, safe and enjoyable purposes."

This department of the City of Madison strives to adhere to the tenants of this definition when enforcing the regulations and policies set forth by the Mayor and Aldermen.  It is our intent to work with design professionals to create and maintain a city that is not only beautiful but, as the definition states, safe, enjoyable and sustainable.

We look forward to working with you on your project.  We see ourselves as part of the design team.  Please call this office at the number below before starting any project.
