Larger landscapes offer even greater potential for ecological design and can provide substantial benefits to wildlife and the environment. Properly planned, they can offer an efficient, more easily maintained, and far more inspiring and sustainable alternative to the many acres of mundane landscapes seen today. Natural landscapes can be designed to integrate with the surrounding land uses and provide the required amenities for the owner and/or the local community.
Investment in the landscape makes sound economic sense; the evidence is compelling. When the landscape is placed at the heart of the development process there are gains by everyone – owners, customers, businesses and communities, in the form of financial, social and environmental improvements.
As a Chartered Landscape Architect I am able to create functional and beautiful places where people feel inspired to live, work, play and visit.
I offer planning and design services for:
- Private landscapes – small farms, smallholdings, riding schools
- Commercial landscapes – business parks, grounds of offices, grounds of businesses
- Public landscapes – grounds of schools, colleges, universities and hospitals, parks, playing fields and playgrounds
Your eco landscape design will:
- Create an inspiring space that users can connect with both physically and emotionally
- Focus attention on the value of the built and natural environment in the regeneration process
- Deliver reduced development costs through the intelligent use of existing landscape features and the imaginative re-use of waste materials
- Work with the existing landscape to reduce project costs and optimise development potential
Our wildlife is under severe threat from man-made developments, and many species are now endangered. While we cannot control what happens in the wider landscape we can make sure that provision is made in our gardens and landscapes for various habitats such as ponds, wild flower meadows, hedgebanks, copses, spinneys and woods, to provide a sanctuary for all creatures great and small. My designs aim to incorporate habitats for the widest possible range of species.
