Land Design/Research2 Inc. is a full service land planning and landscape architectural firm based on the tradition and experience of the original Land Design/Research, conceived and founded in 1968 by four people including my father, Frederick D. Jarvis. LDR was a leader in the profession for over 35 years, and my goal is to provide the same quality design and principles through the establishment of LDR2. LDR2 is committed to the creation of timeless design for the spaces in which we all live, work and play, while maintaining a high moral standard of business and environmental practices. LDR2 can provide world-class quality design services for your unique project at a very competitive price point, and can help position your project with significant value added. Working as a landscape architect over the last 26 years, I have had the opportunity to design, manage and oversee construction for some of the most exciting projects in the world.
Following in my dad’s footsteps as a second-generation landscape architect has been a true blessing for me. I now plan to continue his legacy by bringing the experience I have gained in my career to LDR2, and rekindle the passion and tradition that four young landscape architects in Columbia, Maryland started in the basement of one of their homes.
