Sustainability

Besides designing gardens which weather well and will last for many years we also undertake to use sustainable practices and technologies such as:

  • Ethical sourcing of materials, using local materials as far as possible and complying rigorously with codes such as FSC
  • Soft rather than hard landscape solutions where possible
  • Recycling and use of composted materials
  • Planting design appropriate to the existing microclimate and conditions
  • Incorporation of green roofs and walls
  • Sustainable drainage systems, permeable paving and reduction of runoff to mains drains and sewers
  • Inclusion of productive and edible plants in planting schemes
  • Maximum biodiversity within planting schemes to encourage wildlife
  • Minimisation of waste
  • Greening of the built landscape
  • Creative use of rainwater
