The construction of this rose garden incorporated both hard and soft features. The project included all earthwork including the removal of existing topsoil from the site and the reuse of previously removed topsoil in newly formed planting beds.

New site drainage was installed as well as new hard surfaces, walls, copings and reinforced gravel paths, while water features and associated plant chambers were constructed. The project also included raised beds, rose arbours and timber pergola structures alongside pebble features and a cascade water feature.

Subcontractors were employed to work on the design and pipework/pump for the water features and to facilitate the lighting installation and electrical connections to the water features.

"The Rose Garden has been created in the huge original walled garden in the grounds of what is now a hotel," noted the judges. "A huge amount of hard landscaping has been undertaken by the contractor, who had to deal with numerous changes of level. Sandstone paving, walls, steps, a rill and several water features have all been expertly constructed. Bound gravel paths lead visitors through the gardens. The raised beds were built off site and installed by the contractor. This is a very impressive scheme that is now a major tourist attraction in the North East."
