— About, social media, and how to get in touch

Aboud & Associates is a Guelph-based consulting firm that unites the disciplines of landscape architecture, arboriculture, and ecology.

We develop simple solutions to complex problems at the interface of urban and natural environments. Our accomplished and committed team is dedicated to delivering practical and ecologically responsible solutions of exceptional value. Founded in 1995, we have completed over 1000 development, infrastructure and policy-based projects ranging in size from a single tree to several thousand hectares for private clients, community organizations and all levels of government in Ontario. Our team of landscape architects, ISA certified arborists, and ecologists are skilled, accomplished, and creative.

Our landscape architecture projects are defined by a fusion of traditional and ecological based design principles. This successful approach is enhanced by our team’s ability to interpret the capabilities of the site, and to facilitate and understand the goals and objectives of the client and users, to reveal a site-specific design solution that provides exceptional value, social meaning, and ecological responsibility.
