our story

Faith in the notion that good design can enhance and enrich the human experience inspires us to deliver quality design and creative process management to the science of community building and the art of placemaking.

Our clients come to us with land and community based challenges at a variety of scales- from a small, urban storm water management facility to a multi-phased campus masterplan. At the core of our service commitment is a dedication to appropriate use of resources and enhancement of the physical environment with style, simplicity, quality, and value.


“We could not have been more impressed with simp.L.  The process they took us through, their attention to detail and the final outcome was beyond anything we could have hoped for.”   – Barry G.

“Simp.L has become our go to landscape architects for the projects we do in the Portland area and in other parts of the country.  They are always professional and responsive to the needs of our clients.”  – Eleanor R.

“We did a lot of research on landscape designers when we decided to redo our backyard and put in a pool. We are so glad we went with them.  Jeff and his team absorbed everything that we could throw at them in terms of what we wanted out of the project, and they more than delivered.”   – Bob C.
