The Da Vinci Road

Unlike Dan Brown’s novel, which is full of mystery, there is no mystery surrounding why there is the perception of UK’s highways being branded as “ugly necessities”, according to Roads Minister John Hayes. The reason behind this, he claims, is that designers have been ‘driven to conformity’ through the lack of funds available to them…

The Environment and Logistics

You could say, they’re like chalk and cheese. Which is true: the environment and logistics do not go hand-in-hand easily. But environmentally-conscious organisations can┬ámake them go together.

Encouraging Wildlife

As gardeners, you are on the frontline of preserving nature.

One only has to look at the destruction of the Amazon Rainforest for evidence of this. Here at Oakleigh…

One Day in the Life of...

…a landscape architect! If you expected the name “Ivan Denisovich”, the I do apologise! My writing may not be as good as Solzhenitsyn, but I’ll give it a go!
