Services

Masterplanning

Focused on the strategic implementation of landscape elements to create informed and coordinated masterplans, with an emphasis on connecting communities to their natural environment through sensitive design. We offer a comprehensive landscape service combining Landscape Design, LVIA, Arboriculture and Ecology allowing us to create fully integrated masterplans.

Landscape Design

With a passion for planting and attention to detail, we create bespoke, quality designs based upon our client’s aspirations. Designing at a range of scales and complexity, from town house courtyards in central London to large regional garden estates our ambition remains the same, to create beautiful gardens that both inspire and delight.

LVIA

LVIA’s are an important tool in the design process and can strongly influence the layout, massing and materiality of a development. With an early engagement in the design process we can add value by considering the visual impact a development may have, whilst also identifying any potential mitigating elements to support it such as earth works or strategic tree planting.

Arboriculture

We value trees and recognise their importance to the biosphere with the benefits they bring to the ecosystem and the environment. Trees can be hugely beneficial for both the client and end user as they add an instant character to any development. Our arborists can prepare Tree Survey’s, Arboricultural Impact Assessments and Arboricultural Method Statements to support planning applications.

Ecology

With an ever-increasing recognition of the importance of ecological systems and the natural environment we offer ecological consultancy services to support planning applications. This allow us to design in a holistic manner, combining these services early on the design process to create sustainable developments that promote biodiversity.
