At Tavi Design Group we challenge conventions to improve the quality of life for our clients.
By questioning standard practices and focusing on the longevity of every design we are able to fulfill our belief that landscapes need to be beautiful, resilient, and sustainable. Every project has it constraints (physical, environmental, economic, etc), at Tavi Design Group we view these constraints as opportunities to think outside of convention, to buck the norm, and create playful, engaging, and functional landscapes fitted to the specific location.
