PROFILE

Southwick Landscape Architects (SLA) is dedicated to bringing its clients nothing other than the best from the world of Landscape Architecture. By carrying landscape architectural registrations and licenses in Nevada, Arizona, Utah and California; and being CLARB certified, SLA has the capabilities to meet the needs of each client. Our staff, including seven licensed landscape architects, provides each client the most professional landscape design available. Mr. Southwick, SLA's Principal Landscape Architect, has been practicing in the Las Vegas Valley since 1986 and has become familiar with the unique landscape needs of our Southern Nevada environment and community.

We strive to provide versatile designs integrating drought tolerant plant material, creative hardscapes, and efficient irrigation designs. One of our main goals is to provide low maintenance, water efficient and functional designs that are desired by our clients and essential in our Desert Southwest environment. We are members of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) providing energy efficient, sustainable, green designs to our clients. We strive for LEED design standards whether or not certification is requested by the owner.

"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing." - Muhammed Ali

“The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.” Albert Einstein

"We must not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we began and to know the place for the first time." T. S. Eliot

"Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity – in all this vastness – there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves...To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly and compassionately with one another and to preserve and cherish that pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known." - Carl Sagan
