Reimagine your outdoor space.

School and Early Years Grounds Design

We offer a full school or early years grounds design service via our network of LtL Accredited Professionals. These designers and Landscape Architects hold professional qualifications as well as our Accreditation, and have many years’ experience in designing places that support play and learning.

Our approach is grounded in ‘natural play’ and affordance for outdoor learning. If you would like to know more about this approach, read our Good School Playground Guide.

What does our service include?

We usually partner to deliver a full bespoke service, ensuring you work with the best designers in the business.

We start by consulting widely with the setting and community to engage everyone in the process.

Accessing our design service means in-service training and support for your staff, parents and pupils throughout the whole process.

Our LtL Accredited Landscape Architects are based in business from small to global, and can often be integrated into a new school bidding process. The earlier LtL can be involved, the more influence we can have over the final product.

How does the design process work?

Our designers often work on a smaller scale, with individual projects for play, gardening or zoning of school grounds.

The process that we use ensures our playgrounds are truly sustainable, offering enduring appeal based on principles of free-play, engagement with nature and a variety of open-ended use.

This contrasts with the ‘catalogue and carpet’ approach that many take, and we feel offers significantly better value by avoiding mistakes through poor design or specification.
