Making functional features visually attractive

There is an existing right of way which crosses the new drive to access the top road via a flight of steps. This right of way had a disproportional impact on the site layout, drawing the eye to the vertical. The bottom left photograph demonstrates the old effect. These steps have now been blended into the new landscape through the use of shrubs.

Trees are used to break up the skyline and reduce the impact of adjacent properties. We have also positioned these in order to emphasise the original more rural nature of the mill and recreate the woodland setting.
