Union Terrace Gardens, Aberdeen

Completed: 20/12/2022
Location: Aberdeen
Budget: £1,000,000.00

Ashlea Ltd undertook the soft landscaping element of the restoration of the Victorian Garden in the centre of Aberdeen in the North East of Scotland.  A challenging project due to site access restrictions and the topography of the site with slopes 1:1 and 1:1.5.

The scope of works consisted of supply and planting of 91nr Super Semi mature and semi mature trees ranging from 90-100cm to 35-40cm, a contract grown floral crest, 42,000 perennials and 473 metres of instant hedging.


Glasgow Harbour

Completed: 25/06/2015
Location: Glasgow, Scotland.

Situated on the River Clyde, the unique urban development of Glasgow Harbour, covers a vast 2 million sq. ft of commercial business, leisure and retail facilities and contemporary living apartments which have riverside views with countryside surroundings. The extensive project included grounds work of excavating and filling, a variety of soft and hard landscaping tasks such as top-soiling, planting, seeding, turfing, brick kerb edging, gravel and mulch application, cobble paving, and installation of modern street furniture. The residential landscaping was designed to a unique, contemporary specification, using quality plants and designer street furniture. It was crucial that all landscaping works met tight-deadlines, and the work was of the highest quality.
