Landscape Architects and Designers for Commercial and Private Care Home Developers and Operators

TLA is a landscape architecture and design practice and was formed in 1985. Since then TLA has been commissioned to design the gardens on numerous retirement and care home developments throughout the UK. Instructed by both private and commercial clients, the practice has become recognised not only for its work for the recently retired through to the elderly, but also for special needs and dementia.

The care for the elderly is becoming an ever important factor for not only the individual concerned but also for their families and the importance of creating an environment whereby both families and the person concerned can enjoy and relax cannot be underestimated.

As part of this, the external spaces in the form of gardens, parkland, woodland walks and secure gardens for dementia residents are seen by many as a key aspect of any development for a caring environment. For many families, the external spaces are a key factor when considering moving elderly relatives and at TLA we aim to assist operators and developers to achieve these expectations by designing gardens and grounds that are both enjoyable to be part of, as well as creating an environment that can be both active as well as relaxing.

For more on what we do, our philosophy on design and the importance of creating grounds that have meaning and relevance to today’s market visit “About us” at the top of this page.
