About

Planning, Design, and Management of Outdoor Environments

This site is dedicated to an exchange of ideas – about what comprises a “sustainable site”, how to manage your “living assets”, and developing systematic approaches that yield great places while being quite cost-effective.

It’s all about enhancing community!

So come join in the conversation because we want to provide you with valuable information and great resources.
Enhancing community and saving money through sustainable design solutions are not mutually exclusive; you can, and should do both.

“What we like about Brad Smith Associates, Inc. is that they spent the time to understand our situation – they ‘get us’ and that makes our jobs easier!  By creating the design templates, they have given us a vehicle that works.  Now the development team has the tools to ensure that our ‘living assets’ thrive throughout the years.  Because of BSA’s efforts, we have been able to create a strong cohesiveness between all of our properties, and that is important to us.”
