- Voice of Experience
Oehme van Sweden was established nearly 40 years ago by Wolfgang Oehme, FASLA, and James van Sweden, FASLA, widely credited as the creators of the New American Garden style of landscape architecture. Based in Washington, DC, OvS works internationally on private gardens, corporate and academic campuses, public parks and botanic gardens, and embassies and federal government installations. The firm has garnered world-wide recognition for pioneering a green approach to landscape architecture that promotes a naturalistic planting style, highlights drought-tolerant perennials, eschews the use of pesticides, and focuses on a thorough understanding of native soils. Over the years, the firm has expanded its use of sustainable building and design strategies to include green roofs, green walls, and habitat restoration.
