The landscaping team supplied more than 1,000 tonnes of topsoil and planted more than 10,000 shrubs and herbaceous plants. Additional bulb planting, hedging, trees and turf, formed a framework for the creation of wildflower meadows at the site in Heckmondwike, West Yorkshire.
Over seven weeks it created dementia gardens, shade courtyards, butterfly gardens and herb garden zones to offer a rich outdoor environment to Fairfields Care Home residents and visitors alike.
Paxman Landscapes won the contract in September 2012 but did not start on site until August this year, when the groundwork and planting began to take shape. Meanwhile it grew 95 different plants under contract at a local nursery, which did so well at the job that Paxman wants to keep its name a secret.
The care facility was built by Wates Living Space and is part of the Kirklees Excellent Homes for Life project.
Managing director Justin Paxman said: "Supplying soft landscaping schemes bursting with plants pulls in many facets from our landscaping network – this scheme’s success is a prime example of the importance of a strong team and thorough project management."
