design aims

The proposed landscape design included specimen tree planting, ornamental shrub plant beds, formal hedging, native hedging, scrub planting, marginal planting, bulb planting, turf, and wildflower meadows. These proposed landscape features were to soften views of the proposed development with perimeter planting, enhance street scenes, enhance public open spaces with informal planting, provide structure tree planting and formal hedge planting, and create additional wildlife habitat. A new access road from Garstang Rd meant the removal of an existing hedgerow; however, this loss was compensated for with proposed additional native hedging and internal formal hedging. Recommendations of the ecology report included retaining as much of the native hedgerows as possible and trees marked with bat roost potential. Several bird and bat boxes were also proposed to enhance the site's biodiversity following the development.

landscape audit/inspection

One of our Landscape Architects carried out a landscape audit/ inspection on behalf of the client to identify any defects, issues, or fatalities related to the implemented first phase of the landscape scheme. The landscape audit/ inspection involved a site visit and the production of a brief report with a snagging plan. The snagging plan indicates the number of plant species that need to be replaced and the locations of any issues (e.g., grass seeding or turf, wildflower meadows, levels of bark mulch in plant beds, etc.). The landscape audit/ inspection report was issued to the client for them to review with the landscape contractor regarding all the defects and replacements identified to programme when they can be carried out by the landscape contractor.
