Public and Commercial

Working with architects, landscape architects and developers, we have been involved in the design, development, contract supervision and construction of a wide range of public and commercial projects.

These include preparation of landscape proposals for 16 sites for Slough Estates, involving layout and detailing of pedestrian, parking and soft landscape areas, design and specification of structural tree plantings, specimen and massed shrub plantings, ground modelling and turfing.

We were involved in landscape development at Canary Wharf as part of a team retained to supervise soft landscape contracts and plant supply. This entailed reporting on progress of work on site and supervising the lifting, loading and dispatch of mature trees from nominated nurseries in Germany.

We have prepared landscape and planting proposals for a number of small developments of luxury housing, including producing plans to be submitted for planning approval.


We have also designed and replanted communal areas for several small, gated housing developments, where the original landscaping had failed, including designing and installing new exterior lighting system for car parking and automated irrigation systems for communal areas.

We were involved in the development of full landscape proposals for Phase IV of Princess Margaret Hospital, Swindon. We have also produced recommendations for planting proposals for the grounds of the Natural History Museum in South Kensington.

We have worked on a number of school-based projects, developing school grounds as an educational, social and recreational resource, working closely with teachers and children.

We have designed and constructed a Memorial Garden incorporating paving, seating and planting to encompass a memorial sculpture within Richmond Cemetery.

Recently, we have completed a community garden for a large Victorian church in Earlsfield (below), funded from various public bodies including the Heritage Lottery Fund and Community Spaces. We have been involved in this project from the initial community consultations (incorporating designs produced by students on the Diploma in Horticulture at RBG Kew) to producing an acceptable final design and getting planning approval for the proposals and winning the tender to undertake the work.

The garden has recently received a Commendation in Wandsworth Design Awards in recognition of its contribution to design in the borough. (left)
