Most of the site would remain green with a formal garden for memorials set behind a screen of trees and meadowland. As the land has been intensively farmed for many years, most of it has little wildlife value. We have undertaken an ecological survey and know that we have a great opportunity here to ‘re-wild’ the area and allow it to once again become the home to bats, birds, invertebrates and a wide variety of plant species.
The memorial garden would be an attractive series of walks and spaces for quiet contemplation and remembering. We would concentrate on gardens that bring colour, form and texture throughout the year. They would be a blaze of colour during the spring and summer with soft forms and textures during the winter.
