Landscape sector guide trumpets best of British design

Design such as London's Olympic Park has prompted landscape leaders to promote the sector in a unique publication to woo clients.

Landscape Architecture - A Guide for Clients shows off the skills and knowledge that landscape architects bring to projects large and small, said the Landscape Institute, which wrote the guide.

"It is no coincidence that as we await the unveiling of the Olympic Park, Europe's most significant landscape project for a generation, we have chosen 2012 as the year to publish our first ever guide for clients," said chief executive Alastair McCapra.

The guide features 38 projects across housing, regeneration, tourism and culture, infrastructure, flood management, heritage, energy and health such as Groundwork's community food garden in Birmingham and work by LUC on the Eden Project.

LDA Design's Ian Houlston said: "The Olympic Park, Granary Square, Leicester Square and Jubilee Gardens have changed the face of London outstandingly."
