Copley Square

Boston, MA


Renovation of this famous and much-loved public plaza in the heart of Boston is a challenge. As part of the landscape architecture team, Pine & Swallow is providing soils consulting expertise for a revitalization of the square that, when complete, will include a robust new event lawn, new paved paths and plaza, and the rehabilitation of existing legacy trees. Pine & Swallow is designing soils for a new high-use lawn, new paved promenades and plaza area, new street trees and garden beds, and amendments at existing trees to help transform the area to a sustainable civic space. Pine & Swallow is also providing construction phase consulting services.
