Masterplanning: why and how?

Judith Teasdale is a landscape architect who has spent most of her career in private practice, mainly in the UK but also in the Middle East.  She has been involved in the masterplanning of numerous projects ranging from large public landscapes to private gardens.  During her earlier career, she worked on the masterplans for public parks and open spaces, holiday resorts, hotel complexes, business parks, universities and colleges, crematoria, and private estates.  During the 1990s, Judith began to specialise in the conservation of historic landscapes, parks and gardens.  Since then, her masterplanning work has gone hand-in-hand with conservation and restoration plans.  She now works as a Project Curator for the National Trust and is currently preparing a conservation management plan for Lawrence Johnston’s exceptional gardens at Hidcote Manor in Gloucestershire.
