Having just visited Thurrock Council scheme, St Chads in Tilbury, built by Willmott Partnership Homes, we were pleased to see the planting looking so fantastic already. We worked up designs for the soft landscaping, play area, swales and amenity space working closely with Bell Phillips Architects. We think this scheme has the wow factor and can’t wait to see it completed. The planting design has multi-stem Birch trees, with different grasses and perennials all planted in gravel to reflect the estuary landscape. Tree species were specially chosen to suit the tough site conditions with it’s silty soil and high water table. We looked at the natural vegetation in the surrounding areas and selected a mixture of Birch, Willows and fruit trees which all thrive in the area. The planting is being carried out very professionally and the site team are doing a fantastic job, we look forward to our next visit.
