Associate: Michael Branch  (Dip Hort, Cert LD UCL MLI)


Michael has many years of experience on major environmental projects in the UK and abroad and also has also run a successful landscape design practice in Oxfordshire for over 30 years. ACLA works closely with Branch Landscape Associates (BLA) and for over 18 years.

BLA  specialise in prestige garden design & professional horticultural and arboricultural advice for developers and private clients.  

ACLA offers a high quality professional landscape design service at much lower rates than other larger companies because we have the experience but not the overheads. We have also established close links with other professionals with specialist services such as; planning advice; arboricultural surveys; ecological reports and horticulture to supply a complete 'one stop' service for planning applications and design.  Our professional staff carry out free site assessments, provide professional advice and detailed no obligation fee proposals  prior to undertaking any work.


Recent projects have included:

Multiple landscape & visual impact assesments across the UK; landscape design to small and large scale housing developments; highways and landscape infrastructure; park and playground designs; hospital landscapes and private garden designs. ACLA also has extensive experience in quarry development and landscape restoration projects. Much of our day to day work involves plan and report preparation to satisfy planning conditions for small to medium scale developments across the UK.
