Landscape architect RPS Group selected Johnsons of Whixley to supply more than 300 trees, 13,000 native hedging and woodland mixes and 2,000 ornamental shrubs to the new holiday park.
Keswick Reach Lodge Retreat is set to be opened this winter by Darwin Escapes, which operates 16 holiday parks across the UK. Since buying the site, previously known as North Lakes Caravan Park, Darwin Escapes has been undertaking a redevelopment of the resort to create a "market-leading holiday destination", which, as well as featuring a new restaurant, bar and outdoor activity centre also includes a new landscaping and planting scheme.
RPS technical director David Cox said: "Darwin Escape's new development at Keswick Reach has been carefully designed to provide a bespoke holiday experience. The planting designs use carefully selected plant and tree species which complement the local landscape and provide a high quality setting to the holiday park.
"We have a well-established, successful relationship with Johnsons of Whixley that has enabled a specific plant and tree stock list to be developed, with high quality stock checked at the nursery and delivered to site expediently.
"Johnsons’ flexibility, market knowledge and commercial attitude has aided the project landscape architects to positively achieve a fantastic naturalistic landscape setting."
Tony Coles, amenity sales manager at York-based Johnsons of Whixley, said: "We have supplied holiday parks before, but never on this scale and were extremely delighted to be chosen as the preferred supplier by the RPS Group and Darwin contractors.
"The mix of trees, native hedging and woodland varieties, with ornamental shrubs, perfectly complement the natural scenery, hills and woodlands surrounding the new resort and the planting scheme truly shows what we have to offer in terms of quality stock and the ability to meet large orders and deadlines for our clients."
