Established in 1994, John Richards Landscape Architects is an award winning practice which embraces all aspects of Landscape
Architecture for a wide range of public, corporate and private clients. 
We have specialist expertise in urban design, housing, and commercial projects, the development of roof gardens and green roofs and
large scale landscape assessment projects. Our portfolio also includes the creation of landscapes for a number of visitor centres and
landscapes related to listed buildings and community projects.
Our recent projects include proposals for large scale urban projects related to development of Edinburgh’s Granton and Newhaven
waterfronts, through to smaller scale projects such as landscape proposals related to the development of visitor centres at Arbroath
Abbey, John Dewers Distillery at Aberfeldy and Bannockburn Battlefield. Our landscape assessment projects include large scale
landscape assessments such as an assessment of all Scotland’s ESA areas, plus landscape assessments of the Western Isles,
Inverness District and the Isle of Rum.
The practice has won a number of national awards. Our new urban square at Arbroath Abbey won the Scottish Award for Quality in
Planning. The Gracemount Community Garden and Mansfield Place Projects have both received Civic Trust awards. We are also part
of the winning team for the Scottish National Trust's competition to create a new visitor centre, woodlands and interpretation spaces at Bannockburn Battlefield. This project featured in the RSA Annual Exhibition and it is hoped that it will be developed to become part of
the 700th Anniversary of the battle in 2014.
