Martha Schwartz, Inc. (MSI) was formed in 1990 to provide a full range of landscape design services conceived and executed at the highest artistic level possible. Over the years, our practice has evolved from providing landscape design services primarily for private sector urban environments to large-scale public projects, land reclamation, and planning studies. MSI is based in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
