Awards and Recognition in Innovative Landscape Design

Awards and recognition have helped establish Outside! Landscape Architects as a leader in the landscape industry. 

We’re passionate about our work and people have noticed!  We’re honoured to be recognized by some of the most influential national and international organizations in our industry. They’re noticing our living architecture projects (living walls and green roofs), our outdoor libraries, residential gardens, playgrounds and public spaces. However our landscape lighting projects, mixed-use development projects and beer gardens are creating a buzz too!
