DPDS believes that a thorough appraisal of landscape and townscape context is an essential part of the masterplanning process and we promote a landscape-led approach to masterplanning to make sure that landscape opportunities and solutions are fully integrated within our masterplan proposals.
We provide a comprehensive range of consultancy services relating to landscape planning and design, providing solutions that are aesthetic, functional and economic. In parallel with our masterplanning work we are able to provide supporting landscape and green Infrastructure strategies, open space strategies, public realm strategies and landscape/townscape analysis.
As a company we have extensive experience of landscape and visual assessment. We bring to these assessment projects our wider experience of urban design and masterplanning and the desire to successfully integrate development proposals into the character of the surrounding landscape. This type of landscape work provides an important foundation for masterplan development particularly in sensitive locations.
In addition to complementing the other planning and design services, landscape design advice can be offered independently. These services range from initial feasibility and concept design to support planning applications, through to project implementation, including detailed planting plans, specifications, schedules, selection of contractors and related on-site services.
