Landscape Design

Landscapes help a building to sit comfortably within its setting.

They connect people to the outside, affecting how they feel and interact. From healing gardens to outdoor learning spaces, landscapes play a key role in promoting wellbeing and engagement.

We work with local communities, creating places that encourage activity and stimulate the senses. Places which are accessible and inclusive.

We’re always conscious of our impact on the environment, and nature-based solutions – such as native planting and sustainable drainage systems – are integral to our work.

As a Landscape Institute registered practice, we offer landscape design as a standalone service, and as an additional service supporting our architectural work.

Our specialist experience includes:

  • Strategic landscape planning
  • Public realm and urban design
  • Community engagement
  • Historically sensitive landscape design
  • Ecologically sensitive landscape design
  • Site accessibility, car parking, site layouts and street furniture
  • Sport England requirements
  • Specialist landscape planning advice
