Landscape Architecture

Landscape, irrigation and site design for public, private and corporate buildings has long been a cornerstone of MT-LA’s consulting work.

Go to Parks and Recreation

Parks and Recreation

Parks and open space are the key to creating great communities that have a sense of place. MT-LA has consulted on the Park and Recreation Plans for multiple municipalities in the region. We have had the privilege of implementing the vision of these through the development of park master plans, design and construction.

Go to Plazas


We celebrate community and the best places for community gatherings take place in the plaza’s we have designed for specific and general uses, and look forward to taking part during design collaborating with the communities that need these spaces.

Go to Education


Schools are paramount to instill creative and innovative thought processes in young minds. MT-LA approaches school design in a smart, creative, and safe process to ensure that the goals of the school are met and expressed in the outside environment.

Trails linking key community elements like schools, parks and shopping create the pedestrian backbone of a walkable community. We have extensive trail planning and design experience from local to state level with a wide range of clientele.
