Segal Shuart Landscape Architects, established in 2014, provides thoughtful design to commercial, public, and residential clients throughout Southern California. Whether a park, plaza, or residential garden, we believe that landscapes should be purposeful, sustainable, and sensitive to their context.
We are engaged in our projects from concept through construction, and we seek a thorough understanding of each site and its users. It is that understanding that forms the backbone of our design process.
