A Brief History of Landscape Architecture

The term “landscape architecture” was first coined by Gilbert Laing Meason in his book “The Landscape Architecture of the Great Painters of Italy” in 1828. Over a century later, the term remains as relevant as ever, reflecting the enduring impact of this profession.

As we fast forward to the 19th century, Frederick Law Olmsted came to be known as the “Father of American Landscape Architecture” for his highly-regarded design work on iconic projects such as New York’s Central Park grounds and his work on the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.

WGI’s Commitment to Excellence

At WGI, we take pride in our landscape architecture team’s ability to create unique spaces that foster a sense of place and community. Whether it’s designing the grounds of The Gulf Coast Town Center in Florida or crafting the outdoor experience at The Polo Club of Boca Raton, our team strives to deliver sustainable, maintainable, and environmentally conscious designs.
