Listed buildings with
sympathetic designs.

We were invited to landscape a very interesting project in Leicestershire at Scraptoft Hall. The work involved a fairly wide set of landscaping skills and design work. As a listed building, the designs and materials had to meet the approval of the planners and developers and be sympathetic to the property. The Hall’s grounds contain several new builds and conversions of the stables, blacksmiths and other older outbuildings. Most were built around a central pond that would link the houses together and allow a unique vista for the new occupants. We suggested installing a Southern Yellow Pine deck over the pond for one of the properties, as this wood has amazing durability and a beautiful grain whilst looking contemporary.
