AUTUMN START: Public Open Space

wates living space logoAs part of the £8.4m affordable housing scheme constructed by Wates Living Space Homes, the Paxman Landscapes team are due to start Phase 1 of the landscaping this Autumn 2017.  The new development of 86 homes has taken shape on the site of the former Milldane flats in Orchard Park, Hull.  The development includes a residential care home, public open space and social housing.

The Landscaping at Milldane

The planting of the public open space and outlying areas will begin in earnest this month.   Featuring 14/16cm and 18/20cm girth heavy standard trees, the planting also includes seeding, shrub planting and ground cover.  The ornamental planting plan follows the design created by the Paxman design team.

This scheme follows recent successes in landscaping similar schemes with Wates Living Space, including the Redwood Glades Care Home.

Update: Planting Begins

The team are on site now (October) and the scheme is beginning to take shape.  Follow our stories on Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin to keep track of our progress.

Complete: Landscaping Scheme, Lidl, Mirfield

Trees, Shrubs and Seeding: Lidl Landscaping, Mirfield

Lidl Landscaping Mirfield 1Meeting the deadlines for a late summer opening (10 August), we have completed the landscaping at a brand new multi-million-pound Lidl store and 148-space car park.  Built on former industrial land that had previously been left vacant since 2013. The 30,000sq ft store replaces – and doubles the size – of the store that was opposite.

The soft landscaping completed by the Paxman Landscapes team creates a green aspect around the car park, store entrance and roadsides.  Large 16/18cm girth trees have been planted, accompanied by native shrubs and hedging, ground cover and grass seeding.  All of the planting has been mulched to ensure healthy plant establishment and weed suppression.

Paxman Landscapes had previously been on site at the very start of the project build to remove trees and clear vegetation in preparation for the construction of the store itself, completed by Castlehouse Construction, Leeds.

The 30,000sq ft store replaces – and doubles the size – of the store that was opposite and  will create up to 20 new jobs.
