We like to ask: What happens Next?

Our focus

How do we ask 'What Happens Next?'
Green Spaces

WE CREATE MULTIFUNCTIONAL GREEN SPACES…
With any given space we can provide multiple uses to create a balance where nature and people can both thrive: (1) a space for nature and wildlife, (2) an area for amenity/ recreation, (3) and a place which inspires us to find uses for the plants…. In any given space, the ideas on ‘What you can do Next’ are endless!

Self-sufficiency

WE PROMOTE SUSTAINABILITY…
To appreciate that nature is part of a big cycle is the first step to become self sufficient… best example is when we enjoy healthy food!
That is why we have created our ‘Seed to Celebration’ book. You will appreciate all stages of a plant’s life cycle, celebrate with food recipes and fun craft ideas, and become self-sufficient by simply asking ‘What Happens Next’?

Ecosystems

WE CREATE SPACE FOR WILDLIFE…
Creating spaces for wildlife in local areas contributes to global sustainability.
Why? Because everything in nature is connected. Enhancing wildlife at a local level is enhancing one piece of the earth’s complex ecosystem….
Our aim is to promote a simple concept that ‘What happens here’ will affect ‘What Happens elsewhere’.

Ask... What Happens Next?

Why we like to question 'What Happens Next'?

Theory:
If we stop to think and ask...
i) what happened before
ii) what happens around me
iii) and what happens next
...with the things we consume, the objects around us, and the environment we live in...
we develop an awareness that everything in nature is connected within one balanced ecosystem.

Understanding this wisdom encourages us to happily take responsibility for the environment we live in right now!

We believe that to understand the relationship the landscape has with the human mind is where sustainability starts...
So our goal is for you to ask "what happens next?"


Mission:
1. Our aim is to offer a positive and constructive approach to sustainability.
2. We are on a quest to present innovative landscape designs and concepts that can improve our mindset.
3. We are contributing to the global sustainability debate by acting within local communities.

Design principles:
To build spaces which:
1. makes us aware that we live within a fragile ecosystem.
2. celebrates nature and promotes sustainability.
3. result in a healthy environment today so that we can enjoy healthier communities tomorrow.
