Woodberry Down is a luxury development in north London, located on the banks of the New River and West Reservoir. Block 1 is the final phase, which completes the Kick Start Site 3 development and more than five years of works with In-Ex Landscapes.
The architects were instructed to design a very high-specification landscape solution that would not only complement the development that sat within it but would showcase the knowledge and exacting standards the client has in regard to concept and finishes for landscape works.
The scheme comprises paved and pedestrian areas to accommodate walkways and communal areas for relaxation and socialising. Granite coping to raised planter walls and seating, timber decked courtyards, railings, podium vents and a fully automated irrigation scheme also feature.
In-Ex Landscapes was given the task of taking the vision and making it a reality, its scope of works involved all bulk excavation, drainage, base and civil preparation, new services and ducting, all landscape finishes, lighting and irrigation.
"This lovely scheme is an exemplar for very high-quality hard landscape installation and reflects the exacting standards required by the client. The contractor was very involved with the selection of materials and demonstrated considerable landscaping expertise across the scheme. This final phase of the Woodberry Down development brings to a close more than five years on site for the contractor and this scheme is a fitting legacy for their work and professionalism."
