Our team of chartered Landscape Architects draws on a wealth of professional expertise to provide inspiring and creative design solutions. Working with our community consultation experts we are able to engage with local communities, providing landscape and environmental solutions that help put people first and improve the places where they live and work.
It is well established that greener places are healthier places and for 30 years Groundwork has helped communities to create their own green play areas, growing spaces and parks.
We have extensive experience in working with housing associations to transform housing landscapes to create places that encourage social cohesion and improve well-being of residents.
Our work focuses on improving the quality of life in areas of greatest need and is underpinned by principles of sustainability, biodiversity and quality of life. We promote the use of recycled and reclaimed materials in our projects and seek to ensure our suppliers meet our environmental standards.
We have successfully delivered a wide range of services over recent years: including design and build public realm schemes, LVIAs for commercial clients, play areas for Parish Councils, school grounds and a large programme of housing sector work.
