Harrowden supply turf to award winning holiday park

Harrowden Turf have supplied 17,000 m2 of hardwearing turf for a large landscaping project on the Norfolk coast which has been completed on time and on budget.

Pinewoods Holiday Park in Wells-Next-Sea are proud holders of the David Bellamy Conservation Gold Award. They were insistent that the new 116 pitch extension to their park was eco-friendly, biodiverse and finished to the highest standards of excellence in time for the start of the holiday season in Easter 2017.

Specialist contractor Warwick Taylor Landscapes was commissioned by Walker Construction Services Ltd on behalf of the Holkham Estate. The project included:

  • Supply and installation of 3,500m2 of Rite-Pave eco-grid in parking areas
  • 2000 tonnes of soil supply
  • Cultivation of 43,000m2
  • Laying of 17,000m2 of turf
  • 20,000m2 of amenity wildflower seeding
  • Planting of 600 trees and 2,500 native whips
  • 7,000m2 bark mulching
Chris Taylor of Warwick Taylor Landscapes explained why Harrowden Turf Ltd were selected to supply the turf for landscaping around the holiday homes and for the amenity areas:
“RTF turf was originally specified for this project, however, when it came to placing orders, we were unable to find a supplier with sufficient stock. Having worked with Harrowden Turf in the past, I approached them for advice. After discussions with Harrowden’s technical team and the landscape architect it was agreed to use their premium grade turf. The client has a strong philosophy of using local suppliers wherever possible and Harrowden have plenty of experience of supplying turf for large projects. The consistency of their product quality and their expertise with logistics along with their ability to respond quickly made them the logical choice.”
Given that works were carried out over the winter in the East Coast of England, the contractors have done well to accomplish so much in such a short time. At times, excavations were affected by tidal ingress of water, however, a well-trained and experienced team with plenty of common sense prevailed. The site was completed on time and achieved zero snagging issues at handover.
