Maple Mews Extra Care Home, Alfreton, Derbyshire
Newground were appointed as landscape architects by Together Housing to produce plans for a woodland pathway at Maple Mews Extra Care Home in Alfreton, Derbyshire.
Residents wanted to make the most of their outdoor space, which included a narrow area lined with mature trees at the back of the building. A path had been installed when the home was developed, but over time, this had become unusable due to erosion. A new path surface was needed, with a handrail for support.
Our landscape architects worked with staff at the home to produce plans and costing options for the project, and then oversaw the project on site through to completion. Residents now have a safe and heard wearing path that compliments the woodland setting.
