About Us

About Us & Team

We are professionally accredited landscape architects and craftsmen with 25 years experience of designing, planning and installing landscapes for biodiversity, leisure, education and play.

We are a family business interested in making public places more accessible for people and nature.  We are based in Worcestershire and work throughout central England, Birmingham, London and the home counties.

Our landscapes are designed to mature beautifully, bringing in nature connections and enhancing the sense of place.  Our strategy aims to create a robust, low maintenance and locally distinctive landscape using carefully specified products and materials.  Weaving a framework of trees and plants into our designs, ensures a robust and diverse green infrastructure from the start, creating a unique landscape which develops and matures over time.

Guy Redmond Leaves of Green

Guy Redmond

Post grad dip. Landscape Architecture (Merit); ANCH Horticulture (Distinction, student of the year 1996);  Dip. Permaculture Design (1996 and 2013); BA Hons Hist. of Art/Architecture.

Work experience: public and private clients, circa 500 schools to create unique outdoor places for learning, play, ecology and inspiration.

Guy worked for Worcestershire County Council 1997-2002 advising schools on which trees to plant in their grounds, and this evolved into designing outdoor learning and play environments. He founded Leaves of Green in 2002 to explore precedents for how schools could transform their grounds from asphalt and grass deserts into life enhancing gardens.  He has much experience developing community landscapes for high and low budget options, and his love of trees has remained a consistently important part of all the projects he works on.

He and his family lived in New Zealand 2012-2018 where he continued to work with many south pacific schools.  His love of the English seasons, and the hills and woodlands of central England, mean he is currently very happy to be living in Winchcombe with an office in Pershore.

Alice Robin

Alice Robin has been working with Leaves of Green since 2003. She is an experienced group facilitator with skills ranging from furniture design to business management and marketing.

A graduate in french at St Andrews University Scotland, she then honed her Arts & Crafts skills at The John Makepeace School in Dorset before working in London for Sir Terence Conran, SCP Ltd and Pentagram Design.

After meeting Guy and becoming mother to their daughter Tallulah, Alice reclaimed her love of singing and went on to lead a number of self-sustaining arts related community projects. She is passionate about communities coming together to work with nature for the benefit of all.

Whilst in New Zealand, Alice was deeply grateful to the tangata whenua for sharing their language and culture, and giving her a glimpse of Te Ao Maori – a different world view where humans are a dependent and interconnected part of all living systems, totally reliant on the health and wellbeing of everything around them.

Together with Guy, she set up The Community Choir at The Boathouse – teaching a broad repertoire of uplifting songs from around the world every Monday evening in Nelson for six years. She also worked for two and a half years as manager of Life Linc Nelson, encouraging the community to support the wonderful Life Linc team in bringing affordable counselling to the region.

Rudy Crane

Rudy is our strongest of strong men.  Service with a smile; and he also has tickets for telehandlers, excavators and a variety of machines.  A quick tap on the head to show the precise placement of a feature boulder and he’s a happy man.  He also has much experience of facilitating school workshops and planting events where he is much loved by all participants.

Site Team

Tony Mc Inerney, Rudy Crane, Guy Redmond

Our skilled and friendly site team has years of construction and planting experience; mixed with a successful track record of safety, including first aid training and completing risk assessments and method statements for particular tasks.  Deliveries and machinery work can be scheduled to minimise disruption, and we offer weekly and, in some cases, daily site tours so local community members can be aware of our construction technique and strategies.
