Landscape Design & Ecological Restoration

Adam Hunt & Lulu Urquhart set out on a design partnership adventure almost 15 years ago. Both are passionate plant-lovers, environmentalists and landscape designers, so setting up a landscape design practice was a natural way for them to explore these interests.

Some of the building blocks to this unique landscape design business lie in Adam and Lulu’s continuing learning and passion for geometry, traditional plant-lore, sacred spaces and re-wilding.

They work in collaboration with leading experts and are known in the industry for putting sustainable practice and the land above all else.

A Rewilding Britain Landscape

Our garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2022 will showcase, thanks to Project Giving Back, for the first time, how ecosystem engineers, in this case beavers, allow biodiversity to thrive through their astounding manipulation of the landscape.

In support of Rewilding Britain, this garden exemplifies the harmonious coexistence of people and the natural world that the concept of rewilding advances. Featuring a timber track, a wildlife viewing hide, native plant species and a series of beaver dams, the garden portrays a landscape both restored and re-imagined.

Beavers became extinct in the UK 400 years ago, and only in recent years have they been reintroduced back into parts of the country, notably in Exmoor National Park, Dartmoor National Park and east Devon. The inspiration for the garden comes from seeing the incredible abundance, diversity and beauty that comes from the presence of beavers, a mammal once lost to the British landscape and now reintroduced.
