Modern Design
Organic Form
Natural Planting

    The most effective landscape designs are simple and have a strong geometric layout. This framework is then softened by adding trees, natural planting and water. Gardens are places for people to enjoy, so it's also important we create spaces for relaxation and play.


    Although less is often more, there is a balance between minimalism and visual interest. The structural framework of a designed landscape or garden should be simple and functional with a focus on scale, proportion and repetition. 

    Contrast is provided by planting, which evolves through the seasons, bringing colour, movement and texture.

    Our work is inspired by wild landscapes. The beauty of a woodland glade, wildflower meadow, rugged mountain or sparse heathland is derived from it's simplicity and scale.

    Observing landscapes and recreating nature is an approach that can be applied to gardens of all sizes, from small urban rooftops to large residential developments.
