Kelly Close & Savage Road: 

Construction / Landscaping / Fencing

EVG Landscapes Ltd were contracted by DR Jones and Sovereign Housing Association, to undertake a large part of the ‘estate improvements’ programme at Kelly Close and Savage Road, situated in Barn Barton, Plymouth.

  

The contracted works of six months included:

  • Removal and disposal of large quantities of crumbling concrete posts
  • Replacement of all concrete posts with timber posts
  • Erection of new ‘hit & miss’ fencing
  • Repairs to existing fencing
  • Erection of trellis to property fencing
  • Construction of new feather board ‘privacy panels’
  • Construction of chain link estate boundary fencing
  • Erection of ‘Weld Mesh’ security fencing
  • Excavation and landscaping works
  • Construction of sleeper retainers and steps
  • Construction of retaining walls
  • Brick facing of walls
  • Drainage works

 

  

As with any contract of this size, time scales, schedules and specifications change on a regular basis and the EVG Landscapes Ltd team were constantly facing new challenges.  Working with the main contractors and sub contractors we were able to produce high quality work in all aspects of contract that we under took.

The works were carried out over two estates, with over 75 plots being worked on. This saw some 750 concrete posts being replaced with timber ones, over 300 trellises erected, almost 400 metres of security fencing erected and thousands of blocks and bricks being laid. 

The organization, hard work, expertise and dedication of the EVG Landscapes Ltd team are highlighted by the contract being completed on time, within budget, and to an excellent standard of workman ship.

  

 

Little America:

Grounds maintenance / Tree Surgery

EVG Landscapes Ltd won an ongoing contract with Jephson Housing Group to maintain the communal grounds of some 300 dwellings at Little America, Deer Park. Plymouth.

The terrain of Little America is challenging for grounds maintenance operations, with much of the grassed areas being steep banks, and with the estate being located next to woodland and with the estate itself, containing hundreds of trees this is a most demanding contract.

Having took over the contract in 2008 EVG Landscapes Ltd together with Jephson Housing, and the care taker of the estate have greatly improved the ascetical  value of the grounds and have now bought the communal areas up to an excellent standard. 

  • Works carried out in this contract include:
  • Strimming of banks
  • Cutting of large grass areas
  • Herbicide application
  • Litter picking
  • Salting
  • Cleaning of car parks
  • Hedge cutting
  • Tree surgery and stump grinding works
  • Turfing 
  • Grass seeding
  • Scrub clearance

As separate contract works, we also carry out a large amount of arboriculture and stump grinding works for Jephson. This includes removal of diseased trees, crown lifting and reduction, re-shaping and pruning.

The ongoing hard work and investment in new machinery ensure Little Americas grounds are kept to very high standards.
