Groundwork Cheshire, Lancashire and Merseyside were the designers and project managers.
The 16-week contract, funded by The Heritage Lottery Fund, local authority and local business, saw the refurbishment of the historic Winckley Square Gardens in Preston’s business district, adjacent to the city centre.
The project included a drainage scheme which required tapping into a Victorian culvert, low level lighting and CCTV, 600 linear metres of footpath reconstruction, many types of paving, steel railing refurbishment to the 500m perimeter, street furniture, planting and turfing.
Peter Topping, managing director of Barton Grange Landscapes, said: "We are delighted to have not only won this contract but to have brought it in on time and within budget by working closely with Groundwork and Preston City Council.
"It is a very high quality scheme that gave our staff the opportunity to showcase their skills. Our client and the local people are thrilled with the finished article."
