About Us – The Way We Work

We work in small, productive teams of 2-3 with other qualified specialists to assist when workload demands.

We have always ‘punched above our weight’ in terms of the projects we take on and have successfully completed. We guarantee Director involvement at every stage of your project and can offer flexibility and efficiency.

Our mantra of adding value to all our projects whenever we can drives us to deliver a quality product often to tight budgets and demanding deadlines. We would like your business. We would welcome the opportunity to produce landscape solutions that will fulfil our and your aspirations.

We are landscape architects, able to look at a wide range of environmental problems and solutions providing tailored advice appropriate for our client’s needs.

We have worked on an increasing number of high profile and award winning projects in the private and public realms.

We like to think our approach and inputs are innovative, appropriate, and good value for money.

From our base on Milton Park in Oxfordshire we have excellent access to our main centres of work in the south and south east with easy access to the A34, M4 and M40 and Paddington (40 minutes) and Birmingham (90 minutes). We also work nationally in Devon, East Yorkshire, Cheshire, Norfolk, Isle of Wight and in Shetland.
