Our Approach

The design approach at Covey Pardee Landscape Architects is focused on client direction and the essence of place. With active listening and focused analysis, CPLA first understands the needs and vision of each client, and then uses that framework to develop appropriate design solutions that are functional, durable, aesthetically pleasing, and grounded in their physical, social, and cultural context. The firm is committed to following the principles of sustainable development and minimizing resource consumption throughout all phases of a project.

Alan Pardee and Greg Covey each have more than 25 years of experience providing site planning and design, project management, and construction documentation services to public and private clients for a wide variety of project types and scales. Their project list includes public parks, urban plazas, university campuses, streetscapes, athletic facilities, industrial parks,  commercial centers, multi-family housing developments, and private residences.

A keystone in the success of Covey Pardee's process is the steady, focused involvement of one principal throughout all phases of each project.
