Urban Edge Landscape Architects is a multi skilled Landscape Architecture practice established in 2002 to provide specialised Site Planning, Landscape Architecture, Waterway and Wetland Design and Urban Design Services to a broad client base in both the public and private sector. In addition, we have established Crafter + Mogford Golf Strategies in conjunction with Neil Crafter to provide Golf Course Design Services. Our approach with all projects is to ensure our work is responsive to the brief and compatible with the client’s priorities and objectives. We ensure thorough analysis and assessment of projects to gain a full understanding of the site and maintain technical competence and experience in delivery of the end product. We provide the highest standard of personal service and make it a priority to meet deadlines and maintain budget control.
Our scope of service includes:
Detailed site assessment and analysis in conjunction with specialist consultants such as ecologists, archaeologists and hydrologists.
Design, Documentation and Contract Administration of landscapes projects including residential and multi-unit developments, residential estates, parklands, schools and retirement developments.
Rehabilitation of degraded waterways and the design and documentation of proposed waterways, wetlands, lakes and constructed wetlands.
Hard-edge contemporary design and documentation of public and private spaces.
Master planning of integrated golf course and residential estates, redesign / course improvements of existing courses and golf course safety audit and assessments.
Urban Edge Landscape Architects value sustainability initiatives and incorporate sustainability principles into the design of all landscape projects, including appropriate plant selection, the incorporation of Water Sensitive Urban Design principles and the specification of recycled / renewable resources. Our office was chosen as it is north facing, natural light reduces the need for lighting and operable windows allow for cross ventilation. It is centrally located, close to public transport, our staff regularly ride and walk to work and adopts in house sustainability policies (recycling, carbon offsetting etc.). Director Paul Mogford is chairman of the Society of Golf Course Architects ‘Environmental Sub-Committee’, author of their environmental policy, advocate and promoter for eco-friendly golf course design and management and is one of only two Golf Environment Organisation accredited verifiers.
In addition to contributing to local charities, we have provided landscape design services to the local community for the redevelopment of a community based landscape area and are active in mentoring students.
