queenshurst planting

CLIENT: Private Developer

LOCATION: Kingston upon Thames
SIZE: 1500m2

YEAR: 2019

This private development is located behind Kingston Station. The proposal is a linear park that connects the site with the town centre and makes an extension of the centre going across the proposal. 

 

Rather than a simple extension, it does a playful meandering path  

A significant challenge of this project was the coastal location, with severe wind and salt spray. Noel consulted another horticulturalist, who had successfully established planting schemes in similar locations, as well as surveyed what was growing in front gardens in the neighbourhood.

The planting consists predominantly of low-growing shrubs intermingled with perennials.
