At DVD our main mission statement is “Designing landscapes that create community” and that’s something we stand behind 100%. An important ingredient that goes into our public landscape designs is listening to what the city and the community wants.
Attending your city and community meetings is important to relying to your city staff and for design companies like us to listen to what you want in your parks, streets, sports fields, schools and other public landscapes.
Public parks are not only social gathering places for residents of the community, but they can also offer up youth programs, after school activities, educational opportunities, sports programs, cultural unity and much more.
