Brunswick Close Estate Landscape Refurbishments

Blakedown Landscapes carried out extensive landscape construction works at the Brunswick close Estate in Islington, transforming an unused grass plot into an inspiring inner-city open landscape with new footpaths, furniture, play equipment, and tree planting.

    The works included:
  1. Removing a large number of smaller trees and stumps.
  2. Re-grade the whole site by stripping and removing old turf, stripping the existing topsoil and then grading the open areas to give subtle contouring.
  3. Installation of electrical ducting, cabling and draw pits for new footpath lighting.
  4. Construction of two children’s play areas, one for children up to 5 years old and a play area for older children. The infants play area was secured with new ornamental railing and security gates. The older children’s play area was constructed with bespoke metal-crafted shapes and underlaid with a safety surface.
  5. New granite and raised Saxon paving walkways and access.
  6. New street furniture, benches, litter bins and bollards.
  7. Extensive soft landscaping works and planting of mature trees.
