Kingston Landscape Group installed landscaping of the highest quality for this hugely impressive development overlooking the River Thames and Kew Gardens beyond.

The development contains a series of apartment blocks situated around a riverside Piazza with two large water features and vistas across the river, as well as podium courtyard gardens and skyline roof terraces.

Along the riverside, we installed species specially selected to be tolerant of flooding as these areas become inundated on spring tides. In contrast the podium gardens have bespoke irrigation systems to maintain the parterre gardens which are a feature of this development. There was a strong structural element to the planting, including buxus hedges clipped into waves and large topiarized holm oaks. There was also a distinct "Italianate" feel to the container planting with a myriad of shaped bay trees and unusual full standard clipped bays sourced by our team from the Tuscan countryside.

We also planted huge London Plane trees along the road, as well as raised granite planters filled with mature shrubbery and herbaceous planting.

Since completion on the project, we have returned on a regular basis so to maintain the landscaping in perfect order.
