Contracting

Landscape design and hard landscaping management by Land and Heritage at Leeds Castle, Kent

We believe in helping our clients to achieve solutions. Consultancy reports should not stop at a series of recommendations, but must include contacts, contracts or contractors to deliver them. To support this we work with a network of experienced contractors and also run our own small team to undertake specialist works. Frequently we offer a mix, with our own staff working in conjunction with specialist plant hire companies.

Our works have included:

  • Habitat reinstatements for South West Water
  • Wetland habitat creation, project managed for British Waterways, and also installed on our own land holdings
  • Reptile fencing and translocation works
  • Japanese Knotweed elimination
  • Woodland track creation, including bridge construction
  • Design and planting of a range of natural landscapes as parts of wider developments and for private landowners

Treatment on site is preferable to off-site disposal, but a good treatment programme usually lasts several years, so good planning is essential.
