School College Landscape

Improving school grounds as outdoor classroom, learning through landscapes with habitat & wildlife areas, school gardens, and Special Education Needs (SEN) can be inspiring and rewarding. Contact Us for further details.

Education doesn't have to stay the classroom!

School grounds can be the space for a whole range of learning, social and physical activities.

We have successfully planned and designed the landscape for primary schools and secondary schools, new and existing school buildings.

An overall master plan

Having an overall masterplan of your school development can be extremely valuable. It will allow you to plan your work, to target funding effectively and avoid work being done in the wrong place or in the wrong order.

School masterplans should be in line with the aims of the Local Education Authority's plans and strategies.

School landscape we design includes car parking and access, playgrounds, school playing fields, informal social areas and some of the less obvious landscape for wildlife and sustainable drainage.

We don't just design the planting

We design formal and informal social spaces, school gardens, habitat areas, and playgrounds. There are legal requirements for all schools with minimum areas of external space, playing fields or net site area.
