Waldron Manor - Duck Island

Customer Comments:

"An excellent job completed to the utmost standards - thank you! "

The Project:

This project involved building an Island in the pond, to replace the existing mass of reeds and Alder trees. The main body of the island was constructed from rock to ensure stability and eliminate erosion of the edges by the large number of resident ducks and geese! The center of the island was then covered with geotextile membrane and topsoil, ready for planting in the spring.

The Project:

To re level the existing croquet lawn built in the 18th Century and install a root barrier to ensure no future damage from the adjacent conifers.
This required us to strip the existing turf and top soil and level the drainage layer about 500cm below the surface, prior to top soiling with 'rootzone', a high sand content soil. The lawn was then turfed with Jumbo turf rolls, due to a garden party on the lawn 5 days later!

The Project:

A joint project between East Sussex County Highways and the Client, who wished to replace the existing rural hedge and install a traditional boundary fence. The roadside fell sharply away into the clients pond and there was insufficient room for a hedge and fence. Three meter high Gabion crates were installed to Highways specification to stabilse the road, with preinstalled foundations for the fence posts. On completion of the Gabion crates the traditional Yew hedge was planted using Taxus Hicksii, a variety most suited to the application.
