Portfolio: Masterplanning

We carry out Master plans which provide an overview statement for the design helping to communicate the benefits of the proposals to planners and the public. It is critical to get the landscape design in at the beginning.

The proposals included areas of wild flower planting that responded to the different soils, tree cover and residential layout and use. New tree planting, and enhancement of an existing orchard, with a landscape management plan to ensure that the existing and proposed planting is cared for and matures successfully.

Red Cow Farm

A farm located close to the city that stretches to the river bank, provided a fantastic setting for a sensitively designed residential development. The planting design was based on the look and feel of native species found in the local area to enable the building to become’ naturalised’ within the environment

This derelict site was originally a large sand quarry situated beside the A1 M. The proposals include an hotel, garden centre and restaurant which require extensive car parks. These have been set into a strong landscape framework which includes woodland planting.

Brookes Hall, Harrow.

A new development of apartments set in woods and parkland. One hundred and twenty new trees have been planted to extend the parkland and ensure the future of the wooded areas. The perimeter has been planted with native shrubs and wildflowers with more ornamental planting to create a setting for the buildings.
