Landscape helps sell new homes…

Such a simple message but also one that is, thankfully, becoming more prevalent and accepted. It is also a message that we here at JMA have subscribed to and one that underpins our masterplans or designs for new homes, as highlighted in this post.

One of our recent projects, currently wending its merry way through the planning consultation process, had at its heart a robust landscape design response that integrates an aim to enhance the sites low quality biodiversity with a desire to provide modern homes that people will want to live in. Whilst this scheme is only for eight new homes, a miniscule number when considered against the 230,000 new homes that are needed each year, it does illustrate how a rich and biodiverse landscape can be integrated with high quality dwellings.
