PREMIER Landscape Architect Studio


After decades of mutual respect, friendship and professional collaboration, RGA Landscape Architects, Inc. joined MSA Consulting, Inc. as a landscape design studio of the Coachella Valley’s premier planning, civil engineering and surveying firm.

This exciting partnership will officially launched in January when MSA Consulting acquired RGA, and our team will relocate to MSA’s Rancho Mirage headquarters to continue serving our clients as RGA Landscape Architects, a Design Studio of MSA Consulting, Inc.

The MSA team has welcomed us with open arms, and we have a transition plan in place to ensure that we provide current and future clients with the same level of service and professionalism that has characterized our work for the last 40 years.


About the team.

Since our founding in 1977 in Palm Desert, California, RGA has acquired almost 40 years of experience in providing landscape architectural services not only to the Coachella Valley, but to Southern California as a whole.

RGA is a recognized expert in the design of water efficient landscapes as well as the design of hardscape elements in plazas, water features and parks. Understanding that quality design is a given, we also strive to maintain an excellent working relationship with our clients, our fellow consultants and the governing bodies of the jurisdictions in which our projects are located.

RGA is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council and we have LEED accredited professionals on staff. Our LEED certified projects achieve the best in water efficiency and are also award-winning landscape architectural designs. We are also industry leaders in the use of solar powered irrigation controllers and photo-voltaic landscape lighting.

RGA is a service oriented design practice, and we will understand the importance of budget and scheduling for construction projects.
