Our previous experience in this area
We have gathered considerable experience in providing planting plans, advice and designs for sites with specialist requirements. This could be due to the restrictions imposed by known archeology, historical significance, health and safety legislation, the way a site is to be used or the requirements of a particular group using it.
Some of the projects we’ve worked on:
- Rowntree Park, York
- Letchworth Garden City – city centre
- Mount Grace Priory, North Yorkshire – English Heritage
- Belsay Hall, Castle and Gardens, Northumberland – English Heritage
- Brodsworth Hall and Gardens, South Yorkshire – English Heritage
- Osborne House, Isle of Wight – English Heritage
- Oaklands Care Home, Methley, Leeds
