Greetings To All, We send our best wishes of health and well-being to you and your loved ones. Thankfully Spring has not stopped for the Corona Virus and as we do our part by staying home to “flatten the curve” the landscape around us is bursting back to life. The practice of Landscape Architecture from its very inception was born out of a health crisis for people living in the inner city that did not have the means by which to access nature. In the midst of turbulent times, Central Park was born as a radical, democratic idea that provided access to nature for all citizens in the heart of Manhattan. The 843-acre “Greensward” designed by Fredrick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux was conceived as the “people’s park,” a place of respite, quiet, and an opportunity to bathe in the rhythm and cycles of the natural world. Olmsted founded the term “landscape architecture” while designing the park to create “a rural scenery that evoked a poetic mood lifting one out of everyday care and ennobling the spirit with intimations of the divine.” And thus, an entire profession was founded out of a deep societal need to transcend a crisis. The regenerative powers of nature serve to remind us now that we will rise to this challenge and re-emerge transformed with a deeper sense of health, family, community, and the importance of creating healthy ways to interact with the world that lies beyond our doorstep. May you find ways of engaging the natural world that lift you and imbue you with that “poetic mood,” whether it be in an expansive park, an intimate garden, or a simple planting in a window box. The opportunities abound and we are here to assist.

All the best to you.

Steven Nieroda, Associate
