Landscape Architect as advisor for new landscapes; LVIAs, and EVIAs.
Landscape architects specialise in the design and management of landscapes. Landscape architects produce Landscape Visual Impact Assessments or LVIAs. They also produce EVIAs and landscape designs for existing and new landscapes. If you need to have advice on a new development in a protected landscape area, or on the design of a scheme which requires specialist landscape input, a landscape architect can advise you on mitigation and planting methods.
