Landscape Architecture

As landscape architects we work in multi-disciplinary teams with engineers, urban designers, ecologists, planners, public artists and economic development. We work for the county council and other local authorities and have worked as a CABE advisor, consultants on Natural England and English Heritage projects.

We advise on landscape policy and development control and we act as expert witness for landscape at public enquiries. We have won bids for parks and green spaces and secured training for communities to develop their skills in realising projects.

We have won awards for our landscape character assessment of the coast and management of the Chelmer and Blackwater canal and working with our urban designers have recently completed the SuDS guidance for Essex.
