Awards: Bali Award 2018 - Regeneration Scheme under £500k
Landstruction have been awarded a BALI award for their recent work on two gardens for the Wild Worlds Festival at Chester Zoo. The Gardens both aim to provide a fun and interactive place for children to learn.
The Pheromonze Zone – designed by our in-house Design and Construction Manager – is designed to put a magnifying glass on the world of pheromones. The garden fuels visitors’ imaginations providing an educational space that is exciting and inspirational to walk around and be in. The sculptural elements are underplanted with ‘wildlife attractive’ species, that provide food and shelter for a variety of butterflies and insects. Within the planting there are information boards with lots of exciting facts about how Pheromones work.
The Botanist Lab – designed by award winning Landscape Architect, Illustrator and Garden Designer Ula Marija. The Lab contains a student workshop and a research room. The Garden not only provides an educational space, but also provides an area for various events. The Garden has recently acted as a restaurant for a local restaurant in Chester!
