Palmer Landscapes helps create ‘vibrant oasis’ at £9m care home

A Calverley horticultural company has helped create a ‘vibrant oasis’ in the grounds of a new £9 million care home near Tadcaster.

Palmer Landscapes, which is based in Calverley Lane, joined forces with Johnsons Nurseries Ltd to work at the new Highfield Care Home.

Johnsons Nurseries Ltd, based between Harrogate and York, supplied a diverse selection of plants to the value of £30,000. This included 800 Euonymus Greenspire, over 1,000 bare root hedging transplants, 260 Santolina ‘Nana’, 100 Salvia ‘Caradonna’, 275 Pachysandra terminalis, 200 Hebes, and 32 trees.

Meanwhile, Palmer Landscapes took charge of soft landscaping for the project. Their contributions included supplying and installing over 450m³ of topsoil and 1,478m² of compost and wood bark for shrub beds.

They also implemented irrigation systems, tree anchors, and root barriers for all the trees. In addition, Palmer Landscapes seeded and turfed over 6,000m² of land and carried out planting to enhance the project’s green spaces.

Sam Isles, contracts manager at Palmer Landscapes, said: “Great all-round effort starting from the office team, the suppliers and finishing with the installation team.

“Hats off to Jack Tordoff and his team for creating such an impressive quality finish in a stunning and peaceful location. It’s lovely to see theses spaces created for the residents to enjoy.”

Liza Murphy, general manager of Barchester’s Highfield Care Home, commented: “We are so grateful to the teams from Johnsons Nurseries and Palmers Landscapes for all of their hard work and generosity in helping us to create such a beautiful environment for our residents to enjoy. 

“Our gardens look and smell wonderful with all the gorgeous planting.  We are over the moon with how the gardens have turned out and we know how much joy the plants will bring to our residents not just in the summer months but throughout the year.”
