Imagine creating a leisure garden on top of a busy high street store. That's exactly what ALS Customer Unique Projects Devon were asked to do on behalf of John Lewis.
The garden was designed by Adam Knibb Architects in collaboration with the Leckford Estate. A previously uninspiring and underused roof terrace was reimagined to create a vibrant outdoor space. The refurbished roof garden is a fine example of contemporary landscape architecture and offers an inviting space where staff and customers can unwind and socialise whatever the weather.
The garden build was scheduled to go ahead during November and needed to be finished to meet a tight deadline.
Richard and the Arbour Landscape Solutions Team were asked to collaborate with Ben Browning and his team to source products and organise their delivery schedules. The logistics of delivering heavy, bulky materials to a 5th floor site in a city centre might seem a little daunting to some. Not The Landscape Industry Specialist Richard Bickler.
Always ready for a challenge, Richard swung into action, finding samples, sourcing and recommending products and talking to specialist delivery services.
Despite battling appalling weather conditions, dark evenings and an "interesting" journey to work every day, Ben's team of landscapers have done a fantastic job of work. The project came in on time and on budget - no mean feat.
Judge the results for yourself.
