The Landscape Design Centre

The Landscape Design Centre is home of our design team, as well as our back office departments, such as procurement and accounts.


The blissful peace of our rural location is the ideal place for our designers to work. They can look for inspiration in our nursery, design archive, photographic archive and hardscaping material samples.


We welcome anyone interested in our services to visit our Design Centre and Nursery. We are open Monday to Friday 10am - 4pm.



Chapel Plantation Nursery

The nursery and landscaping depot are home to our construction teams. The three acre plot provides us not only the space to store materials and our plant and machinary, but to proprogate a high percentage of the plants and shrubs used in our gardens.


We grow on young plants and from seeds and bulbs using tried and tested methods and our own compost blend. This gives us complete control over the quality of the plants we use, central to the extremely high standards we strive for.


We also mulch down our green waste and have recycling facilities for project waste.


Our nursery is home to a colony of honey bees which helps the polonation of our plant stocks.
