2022 to present
Aldwick Bay Coastal Landscape Project
The clients were recommended to Emerging Landscape Design (ELD) via a contracting partner. Initially the enquiry was focused solely on a small amount of rear paving renovation with some planting and advice on retaining walls. That initial chat grew into a full conversation regarding the entire landscape and 1 1/2 years later this very large and prestigious project is still growing, being built and designs iterated as information and client preferences evolve.
The site is located right on the seafront therefore has particular climatic conditions that influenced the design and the features within the landscape. The effects of salt, a strong coastal breeze and direct sunshine all helped shaped the landscape as well as the types of plants that could thrive in this environment. Every single feature and object that went into the landscape was thought about in reference to these climactic conditions. The inspiration for the concept took elements from Tuscan tree lined estates to Ibizan Villas. Existing Water features and sculptures helped to centre the landscape design and provide visual focal points through-out. The Project is scheduled to be completed in 2024.
