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.

Julia Shuart, Partner
Prior to co-founding Segal Shuart, Julia designed and oversaw the installation of residential landscapes throughout the Los Angeles area. She commenced her professional career at AECOM (formerly EDAW) where, for five years, she tackled a variety of projects for public realm urban spaces, streetscapes, transit-oriented and ecological design, community planning, recreation projects, and mixed-use properties, both public and private, predominantly in the greater Los Angeles area. Meticulous and engaged, Julia pays close attention to how people wish to transform the environment around them. She allows her personal experience and unique sensibilities to guide her straightforward design process. This process results in sophisticated spaces that distinctively reflect clients and users’ needs and desires.
