Presentation of Information

We take advantage of technology whenever possible.  Many of the architects, landscape architects, engineers and planners with which we work have CAD capability and work electronically. We do the same.  Our deliverables – plans, reports, details, spreadsheets and other documents – can all be produced electronically to reduce waste and save time; and we can also make hardcopies.  When it is useful, we create presentation graphics for use in public forums, or where the “picture worth a thousand words" can best make the point.

Personnel Training and Education

Our associates are all trained professionals with college degrees and advanced certifications.  Continuing education is a priority in order to remain current with the latest research available for managing your trees and landscapes. Quality of service is paramount. You will always find our consultants eager and willing to help you find a solution to your landscape planning and management concerns.

  • Site Analysis and Tree Preservation

At JPLC, we pride ourselves on understanding as many of a site’s aspects as possible. Whether it’s a private land-owner trying to manage trees around his 10 acre parcel or a developer trying to maximize yield while preserving the best natural elements of a site, we collect information and provide insight.

When it comes to tree preservation, the principals at JPLC have created techniques for protecting critical root zones of mature trees, worked with local jurisdictions to create manageable tree preservation standards, and developed working relationships with contractors who understand the vital role trees play in our environment.

Site Analysis means looking at everything from below grade to the canopy above.
  • Landscape Design and Land Planning

We apply the concept of site recognition when we develop designs for landscapes and when doing planning work. Our designs tend to be organic and to serve site users by allowing them to be comfortable within the landscape. Nothing feels forced or out of place.

We prefer native plant materials and simple color palettes to make the point of good design. Who are we to contradict Mother Nature?

Whether it’s an urban environment or a country estate, our designers use their experience with various site conditions and apply a working knowledge of over 4,000 plants to create beauty in the outdoors.

  • Design and Landscape Standards

Having worked with and gathered information from many communities in a handful of state jurisdictions and several local governments, we have developed templates for standards for architectural and landscape design that can be tuned to the needs of any association, no matter its size.

We strive to cover every aspect of community living for the HOA involved. In doing so, we give Boards the tools they need to insure that common areas are maintainable and homeowners are accountable. Easy to understand language and application templates are part of the package.
