“We create attractive and accessible external spaces — vital in the creation of successful communities.” Andrew Tindsley, chair of landscape
Whether urban or rural, the external environment helps to shape and define the places we live, work and spend our leisure time in. Our landscape architects are engaged with projects across the UK and overseas, protecting and enhancing the natural landscape or working with clients and communities to create ‘smart’ green masterplans, imaginative urban spaces, lively parks and attractive settings for new development. Our aspiration is to create landscapes which balance the needs of people with those of the wider environment
We are experienced designers in many sectors of the built environment, helping to create new landscapes for education, healthcare, retail, and workplace development, as well as enhancing the public realm in many of our urban centres. Our work starts by engaging with people, then retains them at the centre of the design process.
