Regenerating landscapes for
Richard has over 12 years experience in both residential and rural creative landscaping solutions for an array of satisfied and grateful clients throughout Cheshire and North Derbyshire.
At CRTprojects hedge laying is a skill that proves incredibly popular with clients in order to restore an old hedge into an amazing landscape feature. Either as a field boundary or a garden hedge I lay them using the Cheshire style of hedge laying. I also really enjoy teaching hedge laying to small groups or one to one with landowners.
At CRTprojects I enjoy working in the countryside helping to restore a forgotten part of the landscape or simply planting a hedge. Recently I planted a boundary hedge that included 8000 native hedge plants. Previous projects include woodland management, creating new footpaths and native planting.
Creative projects include restoring patios rather than the expence of replacing them. Creating planting borders and landscape features. A present project is installing a cost effective land drain design with a sump to help drain a lawn.
At CRTprojects I have the experience and knowledge of helping community groups with the writing of grant bid documents and project management of the project through the project lifecycle. If it is the regeneration of a village hall, children's play area or open space I can help you raise the funding necessary, carry out community consultations and even manage the project life cycle if required.
With experience of working for Groundwork Cheshire and WREN, this knowledge has proved valuable to those groups that I have helped in the past. I have also managed the country's first Landscape Partnership Scheme funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, managing a grant of £1.1million.
