Landscape architecture

Landscape affects everyone – it’s the setting for our everyday lives. It’s the living, physical environment that we live in and share. Landscape is a window box, a streetscape, a town square and the wild outdoors.

Landscape Architecture defines the relationship between people, places, biodiversity and natural resources. A well-designed landscape reflects the identity and character of an area – its sense of place and an opportunity for social, economic and environmental enrichment.

Johns Associates is a registered practice with the Landscape Institute. Our team of Landscape Architects designs inspirational spaces that bring together functionality, sustainability and long-lasting benefits. We take an ecosystem services approach to design – seeking to provide positive outcomes from technically informed designs.

Using this approach and drawing on our multi-disciplinary teams we minimise the negative effects of a development and promote excellence through the use of Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment (LVIA). Our technical assessments and cutting edge technology result in documents, drawings and graphics that convey how a development will exist in the landscape.
