60 Years Practice History eBook

We are delighted to be celebrating 60 years of Weddle Landscape Design. To mark this momentous milestone we have produced a 60 Years Practice History eBook, which looks at the history and major landmark projects spanning from Prof. Arnold Weddle establishing the company in 1957, though to 2017 when the practice reached its’ sixty years anniversary.

We look back at the history of the practice, but also ahead to where Weddles can continue to pioneer in the fields of landscape design, planning, ecology and arboriculture.
