Introduction 

If you’re considering how your landscape project might positively benefit the wider landscape, we can help.

We offer a range of services tailored, turn key services to help you maximise environmental returns from your landscape project. Below is an overview of core environmental services.

 

Consultation

From informed guidance on how you might improve a project to comprehensive ecological assessment and planning. We have the knowledge and expertise to help. We provide consultation services to medium and large-scale projects with particular emphasis on increasing biodiversity potential, reducing carbon footprint, increasing resilience and buildability and impact offsetting.  

Tree works

As Ireland’s most well established and respected constructor of sports surfaces we are able to also deliver an inclusive range of maintenance services. We cater for all sports surfaces and include soccer, GAA, Tennis, Bowls and golf courses among our client list. In addition to offering standard surface treatments such as mowing, scarification, aeration and amelioration we are also specialists in drainage installation and maintenance.

Meadows

Native and non-native flower meadows, along with managed grass, have become popular in the last decade in response to species decline. From residential, commercial and industrial landscapes there has been a huge rise in the interest and adoption of alternative strategies for the traditional mown grass area. As part of our environmental strategy we have become both advocates and experts in designing, implementing and managing of meadow and grass areas. Learn more about the benefits of meadows here.

Swales  

Swales have become increasingly present in our landscape over the last decade as we seek to find ecological solutions to handling water runoff from developments and changing rainfall patterns. In essence, swales are a low-lying stretch of land designed to channel, slow and absorb water runoff. They can be simple land depressions, hard landscape channels or more complex living elements, akin to dry river beds. We have built a excellent understanding of the design and installation both swales and bioswales and can offer a variety of solutions to suit your needs. Learn more about swales here.
