The final landscaping was installed cleanly and efficiently and included a number of items of furniture including benches & pergolas, a water feature and even a reclaimed post box! The soft landscaping consisted of a very ornamental and detailed mix of shrubs, flowers and trees. Extra care and attention was required as the team had to ensure that all newly installed hard surfaces were kept clean and tidy at all times.

The works formed part of a full renovation and improvement scheme to a newly purchased property including the immediate gardens and surrounding grounds. Works began March 2016 with the initial site strip and site clearance in order to create the overall footprint of the works. The grounds were extremely wet, being on a clay base, so a series of underground drainage was installed in the front lawn and along the entrance drive. Over the following four months the relatively drab surroundings were transformed to create a number of striking habitats. An Evergreen Garden comprising of contrasting sandstone paving and raised edgings against high quality turf and finished with structural Ilex balls and a single 6m specimen Red Maple. The Main Informal Lawn consisted of around 5,500m2 of amenity seeding, and creation of a large swathe of semi ornamental structure planting plus the renovation of an existing pond, whilst the 1,050m2 Formal Lawn comprised of a newly created turfed lawn built on top of an 80/20 sand/soil bed which sat on top of a 7mm pozidrain and which was finished with ornamental grasses, shrub planting and low level structural planting. The Sunken Garden was built by the house builder and finished off with a variety of ornamental shrubs, grasses, Ilex balls. Taxus cones and completed with six striking cloud pines. All the existing tarmac surfaces were renovated and our in-house teams installed 3,500m2 of ornamental tar spray & chip surfacing.
St Mowdens Development, Clay Cross
NT Killingley were employed by PM Harris to supply and install fencing as part of their Section 278 works for St Mowden's new residential community development located in Clay Cross, just outside of Chesterfield, Derbyshire. Two separate types of fencing were required for installation; a 1.2m high black powder coated ornamental Estate Fencing to provide a barrier between a pedestrian footpath and a new build public house, and a 2.4m high blue stained solid timber hoarding to provide privacy between the public house and development plot. In addition to the fencing, the supply and installation of amenity turf was required to the bank between the estate fencing and the front of the public house as well as along the length of the timber hoarding. From award of contract the period for installation was very tight and had to take in to account lead times for supply of materials. With help from our suppliers plus a detailed programme of works geared towards a high level of production whilst maintaining the quality of the installation we were able to provide and install all the fencing a week earlier than our agreed programme. In total, NT Killingley successfully installed 350lin.m of 1.2m high five rail estate fencing and 190lin.m of 2.4m timber hoarding, 2 no. 2.4m high x 8.0m wide double leaf bespoke steel gates and 900m2 of amenity turf.
The scheme undertaken at Friargate, Coventry involved the creation of a tree-lined public walkway from Coventry Train Station to the City Centre. A multidisciplinary scheme, utilising the skills of both the Hard and Soft Landscaping departments, saw the construction of tree pits, the laying of various paving, the panting of trees and shrubs and the installation of street furniture including seats, benches and bollards. In Phase 1 NT Killingley have installed over 2,000m2 of paving, including grey granite installed onto a Larsen bed and pointed with Instarmac Ultrascpe Flowpoint, Dutch Klinker blocks installed onto a sand bed and cast iron units and channels.

In September 2016 we commenced the redevelopment of an existing grassed area and small car park as Principal Contractor for Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust. The scheme, designed by JNP Group, created 105 parking bays for the hospital. Works comprised of the construction of a new access junction, car parking area and internal service road. The works, undertaken over a period of 5 months, included site clearance, excavation, the installation of a cellular water storage system and associated drainage, kerbing, tarmacking, white lining, electrical and CCTV works, resin surfacing and soft landscaping.
Resin Bonded Driveway
A newly renovated country house in Derbyshire needed a durable and aesthetically pleasing driveway. The customer's requirements meant that it needed to complement the house and have a textured finish to accommodate a collection of supercars whilst providing a hard wearing and low maintenance surface that was also suitable for equestrian uses. A Resin Bonded Surface System was chosen to overlay the existing tarmac driveway using an odourless Polyurethane Resin dressed with a 1-3mm Golden Gravel. The Resin Bonded system eliminated the requirements to excavate the existing surface saving both money and time and therefore minimising disruption to the client The Golden Gravel aggregate perfectly complements the local stone used in the construction of the house and lends itself well to the natural surroundings. In addition to its appearance, the resin bonded driveway has delivered the practical benefits that the customer required: a textured puddle free and supercar friendly finish that will deliver long-life performance with virtually zero maintenance. The finish has also been proven to be comfortable underfoot for the customer's horses. The owner was thoroughly impressed with the quality of work and the overall aesthetic appearance.
Resin Bound Pathways

The customer's requirements were for a visually pleasing, hard wearing and low maintenance surface that was also suitable for heavy footfall and was accessible to wheelchairs. A Resin Bound Surface System was chosen to overlay the existing tarmac footpath using a UV stable Polyurethane Resin and mixed with a 2-5mm Amber Gold aggregate. NT Killingley advised the client that due to the condition existing pathway it was deemed unsuitable and required extensive preparation including the removal of old resin and tarmac material. A suitable sub-base and a 50mm tarmacadam surface was laid in preparation of a 18mm Resin Bound mix. A total area of 300sqm of Resin Bound surfacing was installed during 2 shifts to minimise disruption to the day to day operation of the campus The Amber Gold aggregate perfectly complements the visual style of the university buildings and provides an aesthetically pleasing finish that has created a natural looking pedestrian walkway adjacent to a green space. In addition to its appearance, the resin bound pathway has delivered the practical benefits that the customer required: The durable non-slip surface is fully SUDS complaint that will deliver high performance with low maintenance.

It was important to work with the University community to ensure minimal disruption due to the location of the scheme.

The scheme involved site clearance, excavation ducting and draining including SUDS, kerbing and edging, decorative paving, resin bound gravel, tree pit construction, soft landscaping and street furniture installation.
