Creation of a formal garden with associated parkland, wetland and revitalized pond system. EA was involved from concept design through to construction supervision in this country estate with a 7 acre park and terraced formal garden. Habitat preservation of a community of great crested newts was ensured via an enlarged water body, and this was extrapolated with an ornamental water feature that connected the house to the water feature with a 500m long stream. As part of the water system, brown and grey water harvesting and recycling took place, along with the formation of reed beds and natural drainage systems
