Kitchen Garden – Grove Place





Nursling, Southampton

Life Care Residences, the owners and operators of Grove Place Retirement Village, requested that we build them 6 No 4800mm x 2400mm raised planters.

With a team of two men we cleared the ground, set out, installed a solid MOT Type 1 base and built the planters. We also managed to re-use a load of heritage pavers to create the walkways around the planters.

The ground staff at Grove Place then installed the bird netting and connected the trickle hoses up to the main incoming and looped water feeds for these planters.

There were no drawings, just an outline from the Director/Owner of Life Care which was cascaded down to us via the onsite maintenance team. The feedback we got was that we had built exactly what the Director had in mind at the time he instructed us to build.
