Angus Cunningham, Managing Director, Scotscape Ltd

Scotscape has been established for 27 years, delivering reliable and award-winning landscaping services led by Angus Cunningham who is involved with the business on a day to day basis. We are a multi-disciplinary landscape construction business with a department focused solely on the design, installation and maintenance of living wall systems. Having worked with all systems on the market we can offer clear guidance to our clients on the most suitable system for their site and their budgetary requirements. The range of other landscape and construction services available at Scotscape enable us to offer a full turnkey in-house service covering all aspects of design, specialist irrigation, rainwater harvesting, installation and maintenance of all of our projects. We are committed to research and development surrounding living wall systems and have invested in a research project at the University of Sheffield studying the thermal benefits and water usage of living wall systems. Our commitment continues next with the University of Cambridge to support the generation of electricity through plants and system development.
