Thoughtful plantings for clients who wish to invest in creating places thriving with life. ​We design plantings for estates, private gardens, botanical gardens, for educational and public landscapes.



Our approach is rooted in the belief that landscapes can be both beautiful and ecologically functional, fostering biodiversity, resilience, and sustainability.

Our design process is focused on the concept of plant communities, considering the interactions and relationships between plants to create dynamic and resilient landscapes.

We create planting designs that serve ecological functions, such as supporting pollinators, providing habitat for wildlife, and improving soil health.

We promote the idea of layered planting, incorporating ground covers, herbaceous plants, shrubs, and trees to create diverse and visually interesting landscapes.

We prioritise designing with adaptable and resilient plants that can withstand environmental challenges such as drought, extreme temperatures, and pests.

Our ecological planting designs are crafted to mimic natural systems, reducing the need for intensive maintenance while still achieving aesthetic appeal.
