From the installation and maintenance of driveways and car parks, to the creation of outdoor learning environments, we offer a comprehensive solution for the schools, colleges and universities we work with. 


Research in America highlights the importance of outdoor landscaping when it comes to students choosing where they want to study. According to Washington State University (WSU) News, Phillip S. Waite, assistant professor in the Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture, said that campus landscaping has a profound impact on campus choice.


He said: “In the first 10 minutes, they see a parking lot, pathways, buildings and grounds, and then their decision is made”.


Frederick Law Olmsted, a landscape designer, knew the importance of design and said: “The enjoyment of scenery employs the mind without fatigue and yet exercises it; tranquilizes it and yet enlivens it; and thus, through the influence of the mind over the body gives the effect of refreshing rest and reinvigoration to the whole system.”


This evidence shows how important school landscaping can be and in some cases can be more important than the actual learning experience. This is why at Ross we strongly believe that providing a good first impression for parents and visitors should be something which schools consider strongly. 


Installing fresh driveways and paths with safe access routes which are comfortable to use will make staff pleased to arrive to work each day, and students will be able to move around school grounds without getting lost. 


Here at Ross our team of landscaping experts will be able to work within a set budget to install the best solution for each school premises that we work in.
