We create unique natural style playgrounds and outdoor learning spaces. Our expertise has led to us being featured in journals and newspapers. We customise our professional services to each school and client.
We have won numerous awards for our work, including Gold medals and special commendations at RHS Yorkshire in Bloom, and praise from Ofsted & SITAS inspections.
We firmly believe in education. Not only do we specialise in designing and developing school playgrounds, we are also actively involved in training the next generation of landscape designers at the University of Sheffield.
