Landscape and Planting Design
These are the main landscape and planting design services that we offer, but we would be very happy to discuss your requirements outside these categories.
If you need further explanation or have any questions, please Contact us.
We offer a landscape design and planting design service which is based on sound ecological principles and best practice, while bringing tangible benefits to the stakeholders.
Our sustainable design solutions for both hard and soft landscape, include techniques such as SuDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems) and permeable drainage where appropriate, as well as the development of green roofs. Each soft landscape design, specifically tailored to the location, brings Green Infrastructure into the site – from making the best and most sustainable use of land, to mitigating the effects of a changing climate – while making essential connections to the wider Green Infrastructure network beyond. Our schemes innovatively use our comprehensive plant knowledge to produce BREEAM and ‘Code for Sustainable Homes’ complaint specifications. Specific species habitat creation and regeneration are undertaken, drawing on both our ecology and landscape architecture skills.
There are compelling economic, social and environmental reasons for investing in landscape. The Landscape Institute in Why Invest in Landscape? highlights these benefits as including higher footfall for businesses, the reduction in development costs by the smart use of the landscape, improved saleability of residential and commercial property and the full realisation of the development potential of a site.
Sensitive landscape design turns outside spaces, whether immediately surrounding buildings, or further from them into places where living or working becomes a delight.
By involving us in the early stages of the project, and using the assessment as a tool for strategic decision-making, costly delays and challenges during the planning process are able to anticipated, and action can therefore be taken to avoid them.
