Landscape terracing project, Truro, Cornwall< Back to Projects
This large steeply sloping garden in the city of Truro was a real landscaping challenge. The brief was to terrace the over grown slope into usable, multifunctional levels for outdoor family life. Massive earthworks and drainage systems had to be installed not to mention bamboo eradication before the terraces were retained with green oak sleepers. The levels included chicken run/fruit tree area, sports pitch with trampoline, wild flower orchard and patio/veg growing area with wildlife pond. All this was done through one of the wettest winters on record, the coffee supplied was exceptional though!
