Appel Osborne has been fortunate to experience significant growth and evolution over the past 40+ years. Our firm now consists of 25 staff, 11 of which are Registered Landscape Architects. Our firm has always operated as a synthesis of landscape architecture and site engineering. This fundamental objective is applied to each of our firm’s site design challenges and opportunities. It is our goal to provide total client satisfaction through site design solutions that are beautiful, functional, sustainable, and technically sound. We are grateful for and proud of the relationships we have built over the years, and we remain determined to provide our clients with superior service and design.
