Ellel House Landscaping
The Sensory garden at Ellel House, Galgate was part of a major project to refurbish the Grade II Listed building bog Ellel House and extend to provide a new nursing home and assisted living apartments for Hillcroft Nursing Homes.
Nicola designed the landscaping and in particular the central sensory garden. The garden was within a courtyard overlooked by the nursing home and the assisted living bungalows. A focal point was the spherical slate water feature Nicola commissioned from Andrew Loudon.
Raised planting beds were planted in a mixture of plants selected for scent, colour, texture and their abilities to attract bees and butterflies.
