Blakedown Landscapes takes on landscaping projects for Midas Group

Blakedown Landscapes is about to start work on a residential care development landscaping project for property services provider Midas Group.

The project will comprise installation of lawn turf and planting ornamental shrubs and trees in the gardens and at the perimeter of the development.

The newly-constructed 30-bed dementia care development at Dunkirk Memorial House in Bishops Lydeard is one of several projects undertaken for the client.

Blakedown was appointed last week by the group's retail arm to undertake soft landscaping work at the newly constructed Waitrose in the Wichelstowe District Centre in Swindon. 

A Blakedown team will also plant ornamental shrubs here alongside semi mature trees within a structural growing medium and recessed tree grilles with a resin-bound gravel infill.
