Landscape Architecture

Spaces Well-Lived

Since 1981, clients across Houston and Austin have sought the services of Thompson + Hanson to create and maintain their residential gardens and landscapes.

We are distinguished by design that is beautiful, intelligent and appropriate, and we take to heart the privilege of creating what we consider to be a quiet but critical piece of a person’s lifestyle. Nothing brings us greater satisfaction than knowing a place we have touched is not only well-loved, but well-lived.

Design & Install

As a design-build firm, we specialize in the conception, construction, and full coordination of every project we undertake, working closely with our clients to shape spaces that realize their vision while respecting the unique attributes of each site. The timeless appeal which characterizes our work is a testament to the depth of our experience and the integrity of our process and talent.

Promoting the health and longevity of your space requires thoughtful coordination and attention to countless variables. For both newly planted and established landscapes, we offer flexible maintenance services for comprehensive garden and lawn care, as well as seasonal and special occasion requests.
