About Us

Don Naylor and Associates was founded in 1982, and today we can reflect proudly on over 500 constructed projects in a wide variety of design categories in the province of Ontario and elsewhere. Typically working as members of multi-disciplinary teams of consultants including architects, planners and engineers, we do our utmost to deliver innovative, healthy, enduring and safe environments where people can live, work and play.

With over 30 years in the business, Don Naylor and Associates has developed a number of core areas of practice. Low rise residential developments have been a major focus. Within every new residential community there is a never-ending array of creative opportunities to make communities more livable, energy efficient and sustainable. Low-rise residential developments often include parks, stormwater management areas, naturalized areas and recreational facilities and the firm has strong competencies in all of these areas. High-end single family residential design, streetscape and urban design, and corporate/commercial campus design are other areas of practice for the firm.

The vast majority of our commissions are subject to approval by government agencies and municipalities, and the firm is well versed in the approval processes at all levels of government.

Don Naylor and Associates has maintained full membership in the Ontario Association of Landscape Architects (OALA) since 1982 and the International Society of Arborists (ISA) since 1989. Don was inducted into the College of Fellows of the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects in 2012.
