Landscape Design

Our design service encompasses a diverse range of projects from parks and gardens to services and infrastructure projects completed for clients in both urban and rural localities, across Ireland

We use a range of media to present our drawings using the latest design and rendering software as well as producing hand-drawn sketches where appropriate.  Our design approach includes the following ideas:

  • we aspire to closely interpret the desires and aspirations of our clients for their individual sites and to create designs that, we hope, are both beautiful to look at and function well under the demands of our modern lifestyles, whilst being environmentally sustainable
  • we are motivated to explore the fusion of formal with informal architecture in any given landscape setting
  • we are interested in the application of sound horticultural principles to our design process
  • we love to see multi-layered design come together to form simple, elegant solutions
  • we like to bring easily maintainable planting into the heart of every design
  • we strongly believe that green spaces are an integral part of a healthy and biodiverse environment
  • where possible, we prefer to use natural play elements as part of playground or adventure space design
