Sustainable, achievable and integrated
Our landscape architecture services
With over 30 years of landscape architecture experience, our Landscape Team brings unique skills and design flair to your projects. Our expertise in design and project management allows us to provide creative and innovative landscape architecture solutions.
We are a Landscape Institute registered practice and our team leader and senior staff are Chartered Landscape Architects, meaning we can deliver across all Landscape Institute work stages
We use the latest digital design software to work collaboratively with other disciplines including architects and engineers, to produce clear and eye-catching graphics for design proposals and construction.
We have strong technical skills in both hard and soft landscape design, and our schemes are specifically bespoke for your project type, budget and location. We’re guided by a design philosophy that works towards long-term sustainability and we achieve this through thoughtful design, sensitive implementation, and effective management plans.
Conceptual / strategy
High-level hard and soft landscape plans create a strategic vision for a site without committing to details. This is useful during the early stages of a project and provides valuable input into the next stage of Masterplanning.
Our Masterplanning service creates an overview of a site or area and defines the design language that will be used to guide individual scheme elements. We create Masterplanning frameworks to direct future growth and the development of an area.
Hard and soft landscape detailed design
We provide hard and soft landscape detailed designs, including planting plans and technical construction details.
Alongside our designs, we can provide maintenance schedules for landscape schemes from the establishment period into the long-term. These schedules explain to maintenance contractors what work should be done and when.
Community consultation and engagement
We have a strong track record of working in partnership with public and private sector clients, stakeholders, and members of the public on a range of landscape schemes. Our range of community and stakeholder engagement techniques include public exhibitions, interactive workshops, charity events, school activities, research questionnaires, and involvement in art work and planting.
Landscape and Visual Appraisals, and Impact Assessments
Landscape and Visual Appraisals (LVA) and Landscape and Visual Impact Assessments (LVIA).
We have extensive experience in predicting and analysing landscapes and visual impacts. Through consultation with statutory and non-statutory stakeholders, comprehensive desk and field surveys, and impact evaluation using the latest computer software techniques, we assist in finding solutions and developing mitigation techniques to minimise any impact.
We can provide standalone LVIA reports or produce them as an Environmental Statement (ES) chapter. Alternatively, we can develop complete LVIAs, which include viewpoint photography, assessment reports and photomontages.
Landscape Character Assessment (LCA)
We can produce Landscape Character Assessments (LCA) and updating existing assessments to meet your needs.
Landscape Management and Maintenance Plans (LMP)
We produce Management Plans to suit a range of applications for both commercial and conservation projects. We are supported by our in-house Ecology and Heritage Teams to produce integrated, multi-purpose management plans.
Our landscape contract administration services include budgetary cost estimating, tender preparation, and contract management duties. This includes ensuring completed work is fit for purpose and long term management is fulfilled through site meetings and audits.
