Creating a Beautiful Balance

Founded in 1983, Bruce Dees & Associates is a Tacoma-based landscape architecture firm that has been shaping the Puget Sound landscape sinceĀ the firm’sĀ inception. We emphasize maintaining ecological balance while creating beautiful spaces focused on people. By establishing settings that unify activities and architectural features in a personal approach, we reach a balance between community use and enhancing the environment. Relationships of safety, circulation, climate, environment, and aesthetics are carefully coordinated to reveal functional, practical, and memorable landscapes.
