Madison Community Montessori School

ZDA worked with Madison Community Montessori School (MCMS) to develop a landscape master plan for their new campus. We have worked with them to prioritize and phase projects as funding becomes available.

We are currently working with MCMS to oversee the construction of three outdoor classrooms, vegetable gardens, and a climbing hill.


“From initial brainstorming sessions through construction, MCMS has enjoyed ZDA’s personal approach. They have expertly lead us through the design of a master plan for our school grounds. They helped us optimize our pick up and drop off area, assisted with erosion and drainage problems, and developed beautiful outdoor classrooms and rain gardens. ZDA’s guidance informed our fundraising initiatives, which led to the installation of our master plan in phases. The overall landscape design has made implementing botany and zoology lessons, and exercising stewardship and community service so easy…and just steps from each classroom door.”
