About Us

What we build

We specialise in making magical spaces to play, relax and think beautiful thoughts. Our unique playground gardens stand out for their inventive use of materials which are sympathetic to their surroundings.

All our structures are hand-made using traditional carpentry skills, each one is unique. Any of our structures can be integrated into a private garden or public space with planting that provides shelter increases biodiversity and splashes the area with natural colour.

Our outdoor living spaces for relaxation and socialising bring secluded shelter and artisan furniture together in harmony. Our outdoor classrooms offer diverse learning experiences from interactive play through to stages and tranquil, shady study places.

We’re passionate about the legacy we leave and hope to make a real difference through the work we do.
