All landscapes require management of some kind, be it urban parks, business parks, private estates, historic landscapes, community woodland, parks and gardens, or areas of high sensitivity such as land in and around National Parks, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) or Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).
Utilising our extensive knowledge of how landscape functions, we develop a vision for outside spaces of all kinds, and create management plans with clear aims and objectives.
Sites are appraised for existing characteristics and features, and a plan is set out for future sustainable management. Management plans are developed with a strong focus on the services and benefits that landscape can provide people with if managed well, such as natural capital, production of food, clean air and water, flood mitigation, increased biodiversity, as well as health benefits through recreational activities.
