In the North East landscape and sculpture roll effortlessly together - at their best complementing and enhancing the natural environment. This tradition dates back to the Regionï¾’s renowned and beautiful prehistoric rock art.

Our landscaped gardens build on the ideas introduced by influential designer and local lad Capability Brown. Visitors are led through artfully natural estates, enhanced by judiciously-sited architectural features.

Elsewhere pavilions are added to enhance housing developments or communications masts designed to the highest standard to complement World Heritage site skylines.

The dramatic location of the Angel of the North as it greets those arriving on Tyneside has made it one of the most iconic public artworks ever created, and known across the world. Whilst the forest around the banks of Kielder Water hosts the largest outdoor space to discover sculpture in the UK. Did you know that the North East is considered to have the greatest concentration of recent public sculpture in Britain?
