Completed in less than 3 weeks during November 2019, this commercial roof garden on the 5th floor of the John Lewis Store in Southampton is a landscaping triumph. Design was by Adam Knibb Architects.
Arbour Landscape Solutions were delighted to collaborate with Shaun Beale from John Lewis Partners and Ben Browning from Unique Projects Devon to provide landscaping materials.
Working in some of the most demanding and harshest conditions, the team turned an uninspiring attempt at a garden into an inviting and relaxing open space.
Considering the deadlines, the fact that EVERYTHING needed to be either craned onto site or carried through the store and that it was dark by 4pm every afternoon, this is nothing but a remarkable achievement.

This urban front garden in Welwyn Garden City posed a problem for ace landscaper Craig McGibbon. The existing mature hedge had been damaged and needed replacing ASAP. The householders were keen to preserve not only their privacy, but also the integrity of the whole neighbourhood. Waiting for new hedge plants to establish simply wasn't an option. Craig opted to use instant hedging solutions from your Landscape Industry Specialist. His clients especially liked the idea that they are grown in the UK and so have a lovely low carbon footprint with no risk of importing pests and diseases.
To match the remaining hedges they chose 2 of the many species available. Yew and Common Laurel.
Here's Craig and Co unloading and installing the hedges and offering some practical tips on handling this product. As you can see, mechanical lifting gear is a must. If you don't have your own forklift available, talk to Richard Bickler - he can help you with cost-effective machinery hire.
