Joseph Richardson Landscape Architecture creates distinctive, sophisticated outdoor environments for modern living. Founded by Joseph Richardson in 2013, the boutique firm now comprises four additional landscape architects. JRLA’s portfolio reflects comprehensive, personalized services that foster meaningful connections among people, architecture and the land.

“Our approach starts with a strong client-designer relationship; understanding clients’ unique project goals and values drives nearly every decision we make,” Richardson notes.  “A design may look good on paper—but getting it built on time and on budget is often the real challenge. We at JRLA are passionate about design and innately skilled in management.”

Richardson, who hails from New Orleans, was drawn early on to his hometown’s unique setting and architecture; this fascination led to an interest in creating elegant, inspired links between people, the outdoor world and the built environment. Today, JRLA takes on residential and commercial commissions ranging from intimate urban courtyards to sprawling country estates. He and his team relish the creativity of the design process—but also each step of construction, from navigating the permitting process to selecting the best contractor and overseeing construction.

“Over the past several years, our projects have been widely published, which speaks to the appeal of our work,” Richardson observes. “Design aesthetic aside, we believe our process—from design through construction—sets us apart.”
