Down on the Farmstead

Landscaping at Linmere

We recently completed a project for Ashe Construction, The Farmstead at Linmere.

Linmere is set to be a vibrant new community near Houghton Regis in South Bedfordshire. The extensive development includes new homes, schools, community facilities, open spaces for recreation and wellness, plus focused retail units to engender a real sense of belonging for all residents.



Over the next 15 years, around 5,000 homes of mixed size, price and tenure will be built in a series of interlinked neighbourhoods. The Farmstead is the heart and soul of Linmere; a lively destination where residents, locals and visitors can gather.

Set adjacent to Linmere Park, The Farmstead consists of three new barn style buildings arranged around a central courtyard and a nature-inspired children’s adventure playground. The buildings include an artisan café, a studio for yoga classes etc, a community hall and meeting rooms, plus a shared workspace.

We completed the soft landscaping of the area around The Farmstead, car park and playpark. This included the planting of eleven trees, instant hedging, conifers, grasses and over 2,500 shrubs. We also installed Rootspace systems to two of the trees.

The project also included topsoil provision, shrub guards, staking to trees and mulch. The work spanned a period over four months and we now start our twelve month ongoing maintenance schedule.
