This planning proposal for 10 new houses in a Buckinghamshire village needed a landscaping plan. We were fortunate to be able to bring our scheme to life when the houses were built. Trees help new houses settle into their surroundings quickly, so as many semi-mature native trees as the budget could manage were planted. New Scots pines framed the entrance as there were others nearby, which were handsome, together they linked the new with what was already there.
Mixed and evergreen hedging was planted and wild flowers, snowdrops and primroses, on the remade roadside banks.
Around the show house we planted large topiary beech balls, and a simple mix of lavender, rosemary, roses, evergreen shrubs and fruit trees.
A few years on now, the trees have all thrived, and the houses are occupied and taking on their own personalities in the community, looking welcoming and homely.
The wildflowers have seeded on the roadside and the primroses now stop the traffic!
