The practice undertook landscape design at the Goodwood Estate for the Earl of March.  This included parkland at Goodwood House where planting is used for the restoration and enhancement of the historic estate landscape. 

Semi-mature trees weighing six tonnes each were brought over from Germany and craned into position.  Varieties such as English and pin oak, horse chestnut and cedar of Lebanon were carefully chosen to complement existing species and open parkland. 

Elsewhere, semi-mature beech trees and clipped hedgerows of box and yew are used around the parade ring of the new racecourse development, while belts of native planting create a more informal edge to car parks and the horsebox park.  Further environmental surveys and advice were provided for improvements to the
golf course.
