Integrated research and design for thriving, sustainable gardens.


Towns and cities need thriving gardens. In an increasingly urbanised world, green spaces, balconies and backyards are where people can connect to nature and feel part of something greater than themselves. And these green spaces provide shelter, food and water for wildlife.  Novel ecosystems emerge whenever someone creates a garden. With a creative and evidence-based approach to garden design, we can lay the building blocks for thriving urban communities of plants, animals and people.

Emerging landscapes is dedicated to regenerating biodiversity and creating well-springs of joy in peri-urban landscapes, through ecology, art and design. Here you will find a collection of writings, resources and projects to inspire and inform you, the gardening public.
