What we did

The care home was positioned within a sloping site, alongside a public footpath and open space.  The encircling landscape wrapped around a group of buildings, screening views and blending the development into its setting.

The ornamental areas were an essential resource for the enjoyment of the residents.

Several themed garden areas to the rear of the properties created ambience, diversity and interest for those who resided within the home and their visitors.

The development frontage was punctuated by prominent positioning of fastigiate cupressus and a tree-lined avenue leading to a parking area.  This, in turn, was intensively planted with grasses, shrubs and bamboos.
