Project: Landscape and upkeep at Birkacre Park
Client: Miller Homes
Contractor: Barton Grange Landscapes
A village green with gentle mounds, pond and gazebo welcomes residents to their homes in a new development at Eaves Green on the southern edge of Chorley.
Barton Grange Landscapes handled the £400,000 job, which included site clearance, excavation and drainage before creative landscaping could begin. High quality was a must for the development, set in a loop of the River Yarrow. The site is flanked on one side by Yarrow Valley Country Park and, on the other, a golf course.
The company, based in Preston, Lancashire, built stone walls and laid footpaths that snake around the pond, decking, benches and a large timber gazebo. Soft landscaping included turf, trees, shrubs and plants beside the pond that will be kept in good order by a team from Barton Grange Landscapes.
Managing director Peter Topping said the project, with rusticated stonework and boulders, ran to plan and the client was delighted with the finish.
