Since 1986, Thomas J. Killip has applied his vision of bringing high-quality, full-service landscape design to Arizona commercial and residential projects. His focus is on distinctive, attractive and compelling outdoor environments in harmony with their purpose.
KLP provides responsive, efficient services utilizing the knowledge, experience, skills, collaborations and regulatory interface that often enable it to outperform larger, high-profile firms that tend to be less adaptable to change.
Results-oriented services often facilitate reduced development and completion times complemented by attractive rates. Extensive knowledge of arid-region plant materials, and designs featuring xeriscape techniques, exemplify the insights inherent in Tom’s hands-on technique. Integrity, accountability, functionality, creativity and value are KLP hallmarks.
For commercial, institutional, residential and communities, KLP provides documentation from inception through completion to meet or exceed client/user objectives, governmental requirements and environmental concerns. Effective practices are applied to, both, new construction and restoration/revegetation projects. These have ranged from an intimate residential entry courtyard to home communities and from landscape masterplans for the national headquarters of a prominent trucking company and high-profile utility company, to a large retail/entertainment venue. KLP has the seasoned experience such versatility requires.
For conceptual/schematics to construction documents including hardscape, planting, exterior lighting, irrigation design and construction observation services, KLP excels, and also is a valuable resource for general contractor and subcontractor referrals.
