VIDA Landscape Architects and Planners’ tagline is “designing for life” - and that’s exactly what this business is built upon. At the core of the company’s values is a recognition that land is a finite, non-renewable resource that needs to be developed with long-term goals in mind, not just short-sighted returns. That’s why VIDA visions, master plans and designs spaces that connect communities and nature – because, as they say, we can do this better.
