LANDSCAPE CONSTRUCTION

Quality standards. Excellent value.

Whitescape’s landscape construction business specialises in installing and maintaining public and private sector estates. Whether the need is for low maintenance, biodiversity, visual interest or active use, our experienced horticulturalists design, construct, plant or maintain landscapes that are resilient and sustainable. We bring a practical, intelligent approach to the development and management of grounds and gardens.

Instant transformation for developers

A beautifully presented private residential development will attract early and enthusiastic purchasers. Fast, effective landscaping is a key element in driving up property sales and rapid returns.

Typical of what we do is a collection of prestige apartments and town houses in Weybridge, valued up to c. £1.9million, developed by Cala Homes. The communal grounds and private gardens are an important feature in this prime commuter belt location, where customers expect the surroundings to be as elegant and luxurious as the homes themselves. Whitescape designed and created the show home gardens in two weeks, before going on to realise the architect’s design for the remainder of the site in a practical and cost-effective way. This involved soft landscaping to include containers, boundary treatments, lawns and a full planting scheme, with careful management and preservation of mature trees.

Creating public and communal spaces

Public spaces, whatever their size and setting, need to be developed at economic cost and in a practical way that will allow them to mature over time and be sustainable in the longer term.

Whitescape has the flexibility and operational scale to take on landscape construction for hospitals, schools, civic and other amenity spaces, large private residential developments or social housing. We employ our own experts in all aspects of horticulture and arboriculture, including ecologically rich meadows and ponds, green walls and roofs. Hard landscaping can incorporate vehicular and pedestrian access ways, sports facilities and surfaces, play areas, car parks and lighting schemes. Through our strong supply chain we can select and secure quality materials at economic prices, enabling us to create cost-effective green spaces that will stand the test of time and heavy footfall.

Maintaining grounds and gardens

Maintenance budgets are best controlled through an intelligent landscape plan that sets agreed standards and priorities for all stakeholders.

Whitescape’s plan will evolve around seasonal regimes to meet our customers’ requirements, and will normally cover grass mowing, maintenance and repair, tree and shrub management, weeding and tidying, pest and disease control, watering and feeding. We also check and remedy hard landscaping elements, repair fencing, maintain lakes and ponds, and undertake tree surgery. All this is delivered using our own people and equipment, making us a reliable and cost-effective partner in managing landscape assets, from school grounds to housing developments, golf courses to cemeteries, business parks to country estates.
