Landscape

We offer  a range of specialist services and advice on historic and future landscapes, parks and gardens.

We design creative solutions to conserve and enhance  rural and urban landscapes. We help to realise the potential of the landscape - developing economically and environmentally sustainable futures for rural and urban landscapes, with the people who live and work in them.

We take a multi-disciplinary approach in terms of our knowledge and understanding of wider environmental issues including biodiversity, ecology, geology, cultural heritage and sustainability.

 

We help clients to develop and manage projects and to secure funding from a range of sources, such as Natural England and the Heritage Lottery Fund.

As a chartered Landscape Architect, a professional member of the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management and  building conservation specialist Phil Collins leads our multidisciplinary approach to landscape projects.
