Residential Developments

Experienced Landscape Architects

We are one of the most experienced landscape architects working on housing developments throughout England and have established excellent working relationships with major developers as well as local authorities.

Our involvement can often start prior to land acquisition, through landscape assessment to tree surveys, detailed planting and hard landscape design, to the production of contract documentation and administration of the works on site.

Over the past twenty five years we have produced designs for single dwellings to developments of more than 700 houses, from the Green Belt to prestigious city centre apartments.

In addition, Martin Popplewell represented the Landscape Institute on a working group of the Urban Design Alliance which promotes national debate on good practice in housing developments.
