Set on the waterfront in Shrewsbury and a two minute walk from the town centre, there is a new David Wilson Homes development full of charm, natural beauty and character. Riverside Meadows boasts beautiful landscaped gardens, designed by Keary Coles Design, viewed from the balconies of the facing apartments and overlooking the River Severn.
The scheme called for the defining, designing and refining of landscape plans for this stunning development in Shropshire. Built alongside the old Shrewsbury Town Football Ground at Gay Meadows, the site nestles on the banks of the River and blends into the outlying natural environment with considered and thoughtful plant selection, landscape form and flow.
Keary Coles Design provided the masterplan, detailed soft landscape plan and landscape management plan for the development. This prestigious flagship residential scheme has grown into a glorious showpiece for housebuilding in the natural landscape.
The choice shrubs and trees selected reflect and complement the high quality design and build of the development. The ecological and landscape considerations of the local area, susceptible to flooding, have been embraced and integrated into the design and complexity of the scheme.
The resulting landscaped grounds, surrounds and courtyard are a stunning showcase of all that is great in landscape architecture, courtesy of Keary Coles Design, and a beauty to behold from each of the residential balconies and the River itself.
