Where We Started

In 2005, during the development boom of the Southeast region, WAS opened its doors. The Founders of the company saw a need for landscape architecture and planning amidst the growth, and we’ve been operating and growing ever since. Since that time, the company has expanded to house three offices, broadened the geographic scope of its projects across the country, and multiplied our staff.

 

In 2015, WAS Design merged with CSA Group of Mobile, a landscape architecture firm founded in 1959 with a strong history of military planning and design, which further positioned WAS to accept an even wider range of opportunities and clients.

What We Believe

We believe that landscape architecture is about far more than just creating a beautiful space; it’s about creating a sense of place to enhance the lives of the individuals it will accommodate. With nearly 150 years of combined experience among our principals and design staff, we are guided by the highest standards of creativity and functionality in our projects, as well as our ethics and integrity in our business relationships. We honor our commitment to provide services that are timely, economical and professional, for each and every client, each and every time.
