We embrace that personal happiness, career success, business health, and client satisfaction are interconnected facets of a fulfilling professional life, and we’re here for all of it.

Creating better places.

Hitchcock Design Group is an award-winning landscape architecture, placemaking and urban design practice with offices in key markets across the United States.

We believe that what we do adds value to the communities we are privileged to work in, increasing our clients’ return on investment by making communities more culturally reflective and aesthetically attractive.

As attentive stewards of the land, we seek to address the challenges of climate change through disciplined research, meticulous engineering and thoughtful landscape design, turning challenges into sustainable solutions that maximize the economic viability, resiliency, livability and enjoyment of this precious resource we call home.​​​​​​​


While Hitchcock Design Group lives in the business of planning and design, we are equally focused on building relationships and consensus with the clients we serve, the communities we design for, and the colleagues we establish on every project. All staff members are empowered to do whatever it takes to satisfy your requests. We care about you and your success beyond the project.

“Hitchcock thinks beyond straight lines and 90-degree angles.”

Jim Basala
COO, Lake County Parks & Recreation Dept.

“Their work comes with a level of empathy with the user to say ‘it’s more than plants. How can this be an uplifting space? How can this invigorate someone?’ That’s different. That’s unique.”

“Hitchcock goes out of their way to make sure they’re responsive, helpful, and doing things that aren’t necessarily their responsibility. They’re just all-around quality. Any project that I do going forward they will always, always be included in my RFP, whether it’s city or suburban.”

Jonathan Kubow
Development Manager, Lennar Multifamily Communities

“They work in a very collaborative manner in discussions and presentations. They make sure you fully understand it. If there are any questions at all, they can help you with it.”
