HOLLAND PARK VILLAS
The private landscaped grounds of this high-end, gated, residential development draw inspiration from nearby Holland Park, providing a green, naturalistic setting.
A woodland belt of retained and new trees wraps around three sides to integrate the development with the adjacent park. A resplendent 30‑year‑old acer palmatum creates a grand and dramatic entrance with pleached hornbeams, ornamental planting and clipped hedging all adding to the sense of grandeur and elegance. A beautiful central courtyard, designed to feel mature and natural, provides a secluded and tranquil space.
Off the central path, stepping stones meander through the naturalistic ornamental planting with concealed reflection pools. Externally, private planted and lawn terraces step up to the surrounding communal woodland walk with bluebells and ferns. Other landscaped areas include hedges to the private balconies and a number of bio-diverse green roofs.
The contractor supplied and installed/planted all subsoil, topsoil, tree sands, Silva Cells, trees, hedges, shrubs, herbaceous plants, bulbs, turf and mulch, and constructed the green roofs. The design, supply and installation of a fully automatic irrigation system also formed part of the contract.
