One of our most important roles is to help communities create community gardens, school grounds, play areas, allotments and parks. Our qualified landscape architects and community teams work with local authorities, housing associations, community groups and local businesses. Together we design and create innovative and sustainable places that can transform local environments and improve peoples lives.
We know that the most successful and sustainable community spaces are those designed and built with the local community as a genuine partnership. That is why Groundwork consults and engages community groups and other stakeholders from the seed of an idea right through to the opening celebration, and beyond!
Our extensive knowledge of local funders and foundations can also help local groups secure the funds and support needed to get things off the ground.
The Groundwork ethos of sustainability and environmental good-sense is reflected through the approach of our landscape team in everything we do. Where possible, we aim to use local contractors and suppliers and use reclaimed and recycled materials.
We have 25 years experience working to improve community spaces, school grounds, public parks, natural play, skateparks, woodlands, access and cycle routes, public art, business parks and creating therapeutic environments.
We offer a comprehensive and tailored service, from inception to completion – please contact us to discuss your specific requirements:
