This was a “Turn Key Project” and we started work two years before any building works began. This site previously was just an empty field with a stable and 2 prefab workers cottages. We started by planting hedges around the perimeter and shelter belts of trees, so that when the house was completed it was already sitting in a mature landscape.
All of the trees and hedging were grown by us in our nursery in Scotland. We brought eight full articulated lorries of trees from Scotland and in some lorries you could only fit five trees as they were so big.
This project was another multitasking site where apart from the landscape design and contracting we also managed the project including the sinking of a new borehole and installation of an irrigation system throughout the property. We are still working on this project!
