Ritchie Smith Associates, established in 1983, is involved in all aspects of landscape architecture, planning, and urban design. We offer a full line of services - including master planning and site design - to private, institutional, and public sector clients for a range of project types. Our firm is comprised of licensed landscape architects who provide the necessary design ability, experience, and technical expertise to develop creative ideas and prepare plans for their realization. We are proud of the many design awards our firm has received as well as the recognition from clients for our ability to innovate and solve unique practical challenges.

We often work in collaboration with allied professionals, both as team leader and as subconsultant, to meet specific client and community needs and to find the best fit for the natural and cultural context.


At Ritchie Smith Associates, we are committed to client service, design excellence, and sustainability. We place a high value on our relationships and on the landscape, which we believe influences and expresses our culture. In treating the landscape, our goal is to design solutions that are beautiful, enduring and evocative of a unique sense of place.
