Philosophy
‘The greatest contribution a designer can make is to link the human and the natural in such a way as to recall our fundamental place in the scheme of things."  Dan Kiley

The design of the landscape should not be a superficial reordering of natural elements merely to delight the eye. Whether designing a small perennial border or creating a master plan for several thousand acres, design principles remain constant.  

The principles of balance, rhythm, proportion and unity guide our designs and affect the arrangement of objects within a design.  We believe good landscape design enables a human relationship to a sense of space and movement using the honest expression of materials with a consistent focus on sustainability.   

Services
Aristotle Design Group is a full service landscape design firm.  With a combined 80 years of experience in the field, we provide complete site inventory and analysis, design development, detailing and construction management as well as site maintenance programming services.
