05. About

Rootstock is a small landscape architecture practice with big ideas. Established in ‘beta mode’ in 2015 with a full launch planned for 2019, we currently undertake a very limited number of projects that challenge us to explore themes close to our core interests: technical innovation, social impact,  horticultural ecology and climate change.

At the heart of this is a love of collaboration. Rootstock is led by Harry Watkins and for each project we undertake, we create a team,  working with similarly-minded specialists that typically include ecologists and engineers but depending on the project this might include historians, film makers, artists, lawyers or anthropologists. This process allows us to push the boundaries of what we expect landscape architecture and landscape projects to be: we do this because we want to make a difference.
