As a team we have been instrumental in the design process from the outset prior to the Children’s hospice being opened. We developed a seasonal interest entrance with structure, colour and movement along with trees that provide spring, summer and autumn displays supported with lighting. The design was carried out alongside Noahs’ Arks management team and its staff so as to ensure that we provided a space to meet the varying needs of the children.
To date we provided landscape garden designs for the contemplation gardens and the sensory garden that accommodates wide and level paths for various wheelchair access and shade trees. The sensory garden has landscaped spaces with niches to sit back and enjoy the space as well as interactive activities for the children as both educational, therapy and entertainment.
The consultancy services that we provided ensured a cost-effective plant sourcing to meet the budgets of which were generously provided by sponsors and donations to the charity and so close working relationships with the landscape contractors, design team and Noah’s Ark played a key part in its success.
Service: Landscape garden design, contract documentation, tendering, landscape construction, project management, planting plans, 3D CAD work, plant sourcing and planting.
“Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice cares for children who are seriously unwell and their families across central and North London – providing care in the community and from The Ark, a purpose built hospice building in Barnet.
Pebble landscaping have been involved in various projects around the site since the late stages of the build in 2019. Recently they designed and planted the Sensory Walk for the use of children, families and staff at the Ark. Ben and Grace were instrumental in the delivery of this important external feature. Their hard work, knowledge and commitment helped to make this a very successful project. They continue to be involved on a regular basis with the maintenance and development of the grounds and we are very happy with their work and support.”
