Taking Trees to Braintree


Turfing and trees for a brand new multi-million-pound residential care home in Braintree, Essex.

The £8.4 million care home project that was awarded to Horizon Construction has been developed to provide quality accommodation for up to seventy-five residents. It will be Avery Healthcare’s first care home in the Essex area. The home is set within grounds that we had the pleasure of transforming.



Following the securing of the project by our contracts manager Michal Kurek, our teams worked diligently to complete all tasks within the agreed period.


Our team were on site for just four weeks and installed:

  • 871 metres of turfing (70m of which was WFT34)
  • 36 trees.

WFT34 is the shortened name for ‘Wildflower Turf’s Landscape 34’ product.


We have a partnership with Wildflower Turf having used their products on several projects. Their unique soil-less system is weed-suppressing, easy to handle, and delivers a guaranteed wildflower environment every time. The turf is laid differently to normal turf – a process that our foremen are trained in, with two members of the team also being accredited installers.

The success of the project and the day-to-day management reflects the hard work put in by our foreman Marcin Jankowski and the talented soft landscapers.
