Who we are


CRJA-IBI Group is an award-winning landscape architecture design and environmental planning practice with offices in Boston, Massachusetts and Knoxville, Tennessee.

Founded in 1959, our practice has expanded over the years into a 45-person landscape architecture firm serving national and international clients. CRJA-IBI Group has developed a reputation for excellence in the design of both natural and urban environments. This multifaceted reputation and our ability to collaborate effectively in team situations have led to long-standing relationships with many of the country’s leading architects and engineers.


What we do


We are landscape architects devoted to excellence in the planning and design of outdoor spaces.
Our projects focus on people, the environment, and connections between the two.
We combine uncluttered design, horticulture, art, and sciences to make meaningful and uplifting places for people to live, work and play.

CRJA-IBI Group continues to grow, learn and adapt to remain at the forefront of innovation in landscape architecture and design. We embrace the use of new technologies to help us better express our designs and communicate with our clients. Tools such as 3D visualization, Virtual Reality/Augmented Reality (VR/AR) and Revit are just some of the ways we can share our design ideas and intent with the larger design team and our clients.

Carol Johnson began her practice in 1959. It was a year when there were few women landscape architects and even fewer who headed their own practices.
