In the years since Alexandra founded Ecoscapes she has worked on a very broad spectrum of projects for private, civic and commercial clients. Ecoscapes have designed residential and commercial gardens for clients in many different environments from dry Langata to high rainfall Kiambu and humid costal areas. We work closely with our clients to ensure that their every wish is met.

Prior to 1996, Alex worked for Pickering Firm Inc in Atlanta, Georgia, USA as a landscape architect.

Latterly, Ecoscapes has been commissioned by clients from the outset of a project to perform the master planning, progressing through site planning, grading and drainage, planting and hardscape design detailing and finally the site supervision.
