In 1992, Wesley Stout made a commitment to provide distinctive landscape architecture and planning services to the corporate, commercial, institutional, and residential community.  Now entering its 25th Year, the firm’s professional staff of licensed Landscape Architects and certified Planners offer creative design and problem solving to integrate the Clients’ often-diverse program requirements into sensitive and highly successful site designs. As a recognized leader in the metropolitan New York area, Wesley Stout Associates provides expertise through each phase of the project – from feasibility and conceptual planning through regulatory permits and entitlements, and on through the construction documentation and administration phases.

The office of Wesley Stout Associates is located in the town center of New Canaan, Connecticut; conveniently bordering the City of Stamford and a one-hour commute from New York City. The New Canaan studio is within the former offices of Elliot Noyes, a prominent architect in the modern movement and a contemporary of Philip Johnson.

The accomplishments of the firm have been recognized with over two dozen design and planning awards, including many from the Connecticut Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA), American Institute of Architects/Connecticut (AIA/CT) and the Home Builders & Remodelers Association of Connecticut, Inc. (HOBI). These awards have been earned in local, regional and national competitions recognizing the professional accomplishment and outstanding design of a submitted project.


In pursuit of our mission “to exceed our client’s expectations”, our goal is to create environments that are unique, stimulating, environmentally sound and compatible with the greater community. We are obsessed with creative ideas, inspired by nature, and passionate about the spaces we create through an intuitive and analytical design process. The fact that we have been able to meet our clients’ expectations with imaginative solutions that take into account the living environment, sustainability, and the need for function, and which have also consistently enhanced the value of the property, is a great source of pride for us.

No matter the size of the project, our ultimate goal is to develop moving, friendly and enduring places where people live, work and play. We invite you to wander through our portfolio, read the testimonials and profile, and email or call us when you are ready to be inspired.
