For Firms and Municipalities Who Value Their Landscapes and Outdoor areas.

We orchestrate richly designed commercial landscapes and outdoor spaces that improve curb appeal, increase property value, and make the most of the every space’s opportunities. By working closely with owners, builders, planners, and municipalities to navigate local legislation and the unique features of each property, we’re able to design incredible outdoor spaces that are both beautiful and satisfying to all parties. As we approach each project, we keep our focus on a few key concepts:

  • Using our experience and expertise to help guide our client’s vision into reality.

  • Keeping aesthetics and functionality at the forefront of all of our planning.

  • Thriving on the challenges and opportunities each location and site brings to the planning process through clear and concise communication with our clients.

  • Employing native and well-adapted plant selections and development practices that are respectful of the environment.

Whether the project is a public park or a new office center, we want to make the most of the potential of the site and the resources at hand. Budget, location, and even legislation can be challenging, but Origin thrives on establishing a vision for each project and bringing it to life no matter what obstacles are in the way.

  • We have been extremely impressed...

    ...with the creativity and professionalism of the Origin team. Lance presented two very different concepts--the first, lovely but more traditional, and the second, unique and striking. Both reflected our priorities and preferences, but the second one was especially compelling. He truly captured what we wanted, but could never have articulated. Once we had selected the second option, he explained, in accessible language, how the process would unfold so that we fully understood and felt comfortable. We can't wait to see his brilliant concept translated into real life!

    We have been extremely impressed...

  • It was a pleasure to work with Origin...

    ...Landscape Architecture on our landscape plan for our home in North Augusta. Lance is very talented, professional and knowledgeable. On our first meeting, Lance surveyed our property and listened to our desires for the landscape plan. It was a thrill to finally see the plan and our dream become a reality! I highly recommend using Origin Landscape Architecture for your landscaping project.

    It was a pleasure to work with Origin...

  • Lance is friendly, professional...

    ...and knowledgeable and he has been a pleasure to work with. He listens well and is willing to modify and/or adapt the plans according to our concerns. We are so excited and can hardly wait to begin, and another great thing is that the designs are created so that everything does not necessarily have to be done all at once. It can be done in phases, as weather, budget and family needs allow. All in all we have had a great experience with Lance and Origin Landscape Architecture and i recommend him to you.

    Lance is friendly, professional...

    ...Lance at Origin as he created our landscape design. Even when we had specific design changes or plant changes , Lance was very flexible & accommodating to our needs. Definitely would recommend Origin Landscape Architecture for all your outside design needs.

    Very easy to work with...

  • Founder and Owner, Lance Cheely has worked in Landscape Architecture since 2009 after graduating with honors from the University of Georgia. Among his many accolades, Lance received the prestigious Neel Reid Memorial Scholarship from the Peachtree Garden Club while attending UGA, as well as many Government Variances, which allowed projects which wouldn’t normally meet lawful criteria, to be completed. It was this sense of creativity and innovation that lead Lance to Augusta University where he obtained his Master’s of Business in 2015.

    Lance has a diverse professional background, having worked closely with architectural, civil, and structural engineering design concepts. Lance founded Origin L.A. on the concept that understanding, incorporating, and implementing these different design disciplines is how Landscape Architects are uniquely equipped to create rich and functional spaces that can actually make people’s lives better.

    Lance and the entire Origin family is always on the lookout for opportunities to engage in projects, and connect with people and organizations that appreciate the value of well-designed and sustainable outdoor spaces.

  • We offer a number of services each with a varying time for delivery of the design. Master planning takes a bit longer than planting plans only, however, for all but the largest of properties a few weeks is usually sufficient. Much of the design schedule is taken up in client review and coordinating meeting availability.

  • Our registered Landscape Architects have practiced commercial landscape design, large scale land planning, large and small park design, and street-scape design. Our designs focus on sustainability, minimizing maintenance needs, and going beyond the commonplace landscape design.
    We all have our favorite styles, but our team is fully capable of designing in a wide range of styles. From formal gardens with clipped hedges, to traditional southern estate plantings, to using native plantings in the now popular “new perennial” style, one of Origin’s Landscape Architects can deliver just what you’re looking for.
