Blades & Goven, LLC is a team of design professionals offering consulting landscape architectural, site planning and related design services to clients in the public and private sectors.
The firm was established in 1996 through the merger of the independent practices of the firm’s two principals, Barry Blades and Earl Goven. The firm combines the talents and experience of the two principals to provide enhanced capabilities in terms of client responsiveness, design expertise and range of services. In addition, the firm maintains its commitment to the involvement of the principals throughout all project phases.
By emphasizing a team approach with a priority on achieving the client’s goals and objectives, the principals of Blades & Goven have established a proven track record of completed projects. Through a close working relationship with Federal, State and municipal agencies, the firm has successfully guided many of these projects through the regulatory processes and the acquisition of environmental permits.
