Landscape construction in Arlesford
Following on for an extensive refurbishment and extension of the house, swimming pool and energy Canal, PC Landscapes won the tender to re-landscape the garden and surrounding areas. This included complete re-grading of the ground, new stone walls, limestone paving, garden steps with integrated lighting, hot tub and orchard. Oak timber bridges were installed over the energy canal, along with a new oak jetty in the pond.
The installation of a fully automatic irrigation system, with a buried reservoir tank ensures the planting gets the water it needs. Drip irrigation to the planting beds, trees and hedges, with pop-up sprinklers on the lower lawns.
The garden is divided into areas by the planting of pleached hornbeam trees and yew hedges. Additional drainage was added under the trees and hedges, due to the property being close to the ground water level from nearby stream & pond. Rainwater runoff from the higher, surrounding fields also had to be considered.
Communication was vital between client, designer and builders. Using our extensive knowledge and practical skills, this close collaboration resulted in resolving all issues that arose in order to achieve the clients desired results and effectively manage expectations throughout the project.
