Landscape architecture encompasses a wide range of activity from planning and design to scientific research and management, in both rural and urban areas. The case studies we have chosen focus on the positive economic benefits delivered by the application of these skills. These case studies demonstrate many benefits, including:
Creating spaces that users can connect with both physically and emotionally – leading to benefits for local businesses such as increased footfall and time spent.
Focussing attention on the value of the built and natural environment in the regeneration process.
Delivering reduced development costs through the intelligent use of existing landscape features and the imaginative disposal/incorporation of construction waste.
Realising increased saleability and rentability of both private housing and commercial property.
Optimising the full development potential of a given location.
