Since our founding in 2011, UpStudio Landscapes has been working to make a positive impact on the quality of our environments. With over 20 years of experience in the landscape architecture profession we approach landscapes from a holistic view and are committed to creating well-designed, vibrant outdoor spaces.

Our studio- based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is dedicated to creating site-specific solutions with an emphasis on detailing, planting composition, site planning and design. As registered landscape architects and LEED accredited professionals we bring the knowledge and understanding of the landscape as part of an integrated system, responding to both the built and natural environment.

As a certified Woman Business Enterprise (WBE) and a certified Small Diverse Business (SDB) in Pennsylvania, we help our clients and design partners meet goals for a wide variety of projects.  See Certifications.


We are dedicated to a collaborative design process and work closely with our clients and design partners.  With a firm foundation in landscape architecture, we often team with other design disciplines that are leaders in their respective fields, and find that this collaborative approach generates the most successful project outcomes.
