SOLIDAGO is a full-service landscape architecture design firm specializing in projects that enhance ecological function, renew social vitality and human health, and generate measurable value. The word Solidago is the genus name of goldenrod, a beautiful wildflower abundant throughout North America. From the Latin soldare, which means ‘to make whole’, the name also speaks to our commitment to value the unique identity of every site and to celebrate that place, maximize the ecosystem services generated by the site and elegantly integrate the project program.
