2D Master Plan for a Garden Design in Hampton, London.
A Biodiverse Planting Plan required by Richmond Borough Council for a new build in Hampton.
Hampton Garden. Wensleydale Road. Biodiverse Garden. Completion 2022.
This is an exciting project in Hampton, London. Permission has been granted for the demolition of a detached bungalow. In its place, a large detached 5 bedroom house has been permitted from Richmond Borough Council. Sarah Link Landscape and Garden Design have been commissioned to oversee the design and landscaping for this new scheme. We have worked alongside other professionals to ensure the strict conditions are adhered. Such conditions mean the choice of Hard and Soft Landscaping materials and methods of construction used are sympathetic to the environment and wildlife. We are using a raised paving support system, allowing water to drain directly between the paving which eliminates the need for underground drainage. The plants must integrate with the surrounding streetscape, with all species being native or non-native but with known value for wildlife and include examples of seed/fruit. Pollinator plants are included along with plants which attract flying insects. Another condition is to include a Stag Beetle Loggery, Invertebrate Tower, a Small Pond for Newts and Frogs, nesting and feeding areas for Birds and a Bat Box for nesting. Finally, each boundary includes a small hole in the fence which allows hedgehogs to roam. These are all elements we should consciously include in our gardens, whether it is newly designed or existing. Apart from the huge importance in creating a biodiverse garden, I am sure you would agree, these extremely interesting components create a far more interesting outdoor space!
