Welcome to Killip Land Planning, LLC

Established in 1986, Killip Land Planning’s (KLP) extensive and acclaimed design experience is characterized by accountability, integrity, versatility, advanced technology and value in landscape planning and architecture. Tom Killip and his highly qualified associates create and execute designs that are personalized, environmentally responsible and project appropriate.



Included are entertainment, corporate, institutional and public areas. Time-sensitive to market trends, designs are based on planned activities. Spaces are welcoming for occupants and often emphasize aesthetics over functionality.

Site elements, typically on a larger scale than residential, are more sophisticated in general, as the main goal is revenue generation.


Custom- Features and elements are designed to be highly functional, convenient and enhance lifestyle and value for home owners while satisfying zoning and HOA requirements.

Communities – Key considerations in the purchase of raw land/existing homes in a subdivision/community are purchase price, marketability, aesthetics and proximity to green space.

We were fortunate to have hired Tom Killip as our Landscape Architect for a complete remodel of, both, our front and back yards. Tom did a terrific job. We found him to be very creative, with a great eye for what was possible, very detailed in his plans and a pleasure to work with. Thanks to the completeness of his plans we were able to receive 8 “apples to apples” bids for the work. I highly recommend Tom Killip as an excellent landscape architect
