Extensive ground works involving ground modelling and importing over 5,000 cubic meters of topsoil. Due to the steep gradients around the site we also carried out considerable ground stabilisation.

Minor civils comprising an informal network of paths running through the soft landscaping surrounding the lakes requiring intricate setting out and interface with the lighting contractor.

The main car park planting featured 350 contract grown Pleached limes under planted with formal yew hedging. Elsewhere the scheme comprises a mixture of native and ornamental shrub planting.

Other areas were treated with traditional turf, with wild flower seeding to the major slopes. The scheme also included an intricate ‘ziggurat’ modelled on a traditional Egyptian design with a series of symmetrical stepped terraces.  We also carried out extensive aquatic and marginal planting, which was a major factor in the development being awarded BREEAM status.  We even stocked the lake with fish!
