Current Mixed Landscape Projects

Siblands SLD Secondary School - South Gloucestershire Council

We have recently been awarded the landscaping works around a new build primary school in Thornbury by Interserve Project Services. The works involve topsoiling all soft landscape areas, tree and shrub planting and turfing. We are also installing steel bollards and seats and a stainless steel water feature. A mobility trail will also be installed using several paving materials to provide interest for pupils. Upon completion all works will be maintained for twelve months by our own maintenance teams.

Avondale Gardens, Grangetown - Enhancements

We have been selected by Cardiff City Council to construct a new macadam footpath together with bench seating areas. The path will meander through an area of land which we will cultivate and sow creating a wild flower meadow transforming rough open space grassland into a tranquil setting in which to relax. The area will be formally known as Avondale Gardens. The path will link with nearby reconstructed footpaths and landscaped areas of The Marl which we carried out previously for Cardiff City Council.

Cabot House, Bristol

We have been awarded this contract in Bristol City Centre by Sir Robert McAlpine Ltd. The building is located in a densely built up area of Bristol which makes access for all plant and material very difficult. The works involve the topsoiling and planting of two large concrete planters which are located within the centre of the new building and the topsoiling and planting of external areas within the new car park. We will also be supplying and placing urban tree soil within three parking areas on the perimeter of the building. A low timber fence is to be installed along the edge of the car park and upon completion the site will be maintained for 12 months.

Groesfaen Community Garden

The works involve vegetation clearance and the removal of fly tipping and old street furniture from an area of public open space. Existing concrete steps and kerbs are to be removed along with an existing dilapidated boundary stockproof fence. A circular, mortared stone Clawdd wall infilled with soil is to be built along with a timber sleeper retaining wall. New timber steps and timber edged paths are to be formed which are to be surfaced with a combination of coloured Natratex macadam and compacted Breedon gravel. Bespoke green oak benches are to be supplied and installed and a selection of specimen trees and hedgerows are to be planted and disturbed areas re-seeded.

Rhyd-Y-Blew Lapwing Mitigation Strategy

This contract for the Welsh Assembly Government is currently being undertaken at Bryn Bach Park, Tredegar. It involves the creation of a series of shallow clay lined scrapes, earth bunding, tree/scrub clearance and the creation of nesting beds using imported stone for lapwings. Lapwings are a familiar farmland bird but they have suffered significant declines in the last 25 years and they are an 'Amber List' species because of the importance of their UK wintering population. This is an interesting and diverse environmental project where a sympathetic eye to habitat creation is essential.
