Now celebrating our 25th Anniversary of Landscape Architectural Consulting in the greater Pacific Northwest! Based in Vancouver, BC, Richard Findlay Landscape Architect Inc. (“RFLA”) continues as an award-winning, progressive and detail-oriented firm. I provide a full range of professional landscape architectural consulting services to both public and private sector clientele. My services include:

  • Initial in-person consultation
  • Facilitate sessions to obtain initial project input
  • Community engagement
  • Coordination with other design and construction professionals
  • Preliminary concept designs
  • Detailed design and development
  • Permit and approval processes
  • Tender services
  • Construction team selection and bid process
  • Oversight of construction implementation and reporting
  • Substantial completion/project sign-off

My portfolio includes design in the categories I have noted. Please browse through a few of my selected project photographs to get a sense of the quality of my work.

I feel very fortunate to have designed such an amazing variety of projects for such a broad range of clientele. My practice in landscape architecture is a life-long pursuit to create your perfect outdoor experience. As a sole practitioner, I provide my clients with a high level of service and the personal attention to the details this requires. When you hire me-you get me…nothing is lost in translation.

I have been involved in the landscape industry in one facet or another for my entire career:

  • Starting in nursery operations;
  • Progressing into residential and larger scale contracting with my own design-build firm;
  • And now, as a Design Consultant since 1988.

I bring all this experience to my work for you every day on your project.
