Our People

Our dedicated team of professional designers brings imagination, practicality and problem solving to all projects. With a mixture of experienced landscape designers, horticulturalists and graphic designers, we are able to present quickly and effectively proposals that are imaginative as well as fully costed.

This combined approach provides cost surety to clients for the long- term future development.

We are also committed to supporting the Continuing Professional Development of our staff to ensure the most current and relevant design techniques, materials and technology are used to enhance a scheme, as well as providing a stimulating work environment.

The principles are fully supported by a mixed team of other designers ranging from Environmental, Arboricultural, Historical and Urban consultants.

His passion for horticulture produces planting concepts and layouts that relate to the varying needs of the site and local requirements, as well as those of the larger community. His primary concern is to always ensure that the design works at the human scale.
