Harton Quays Park, South Shields

Client: Balfour Beatty
Contract Value: £198,767.25

Harton Quays Park is the first phase of South Tyneside Council’s Riverside Regeneration Strategy and is designed with the aim of providing additional amenity to the area, a cultural focus and spaces for events. Sustain Landscapes implemented the high specification soft landscaping package, which includes structural grass and floral mixes to provide a barcode of colour, as well as a dramatic pine grove viewing point. Lawned areas frame key views across the estuary and park, as well as providing spectator areas for events spaces. The park, which has received a CEEQUAL Award for Sustainability, will be maintained by Sustain Landscapes for five years following the completion of construction works.

The works involved:

  • Specimen tree planting to pine grove viewing area, water feature and soft landscaping area with above and below ground anchoring systems
  • Topsoil amelioration
  • Planting of structural grass and floral ribbon planting
  • Gravel mulching
  • Turfing & Grass Seeding
  • Grounds Maintenance
