Plant supply for Darwin Escapes’ new lodge and retreat

Plant supply for Darwin Escapes’ new lodge and retreat

Our Wholesale Commercial team worked with Darwin Escapes to supply plants for a new lodge and retreat, the Norfolk Woods Resort & Spa.

The new Norfolk complex, which opened in January, includes luxury self-catering lodges, many with their own private hot tub facilities, an on-site restaurant, tropically-heated swimming pool and an on-site spa.

We worked with leading multi-disciplinary consultancy firm RPS Group plc on creating a variety of environmental aspects for the project, including the landscaping planning and design, arboriculture and ecology.

We provided products worth over £50,000 to be planted at the resort, including a variety of ornamental and native plant stock, all container-grown to accommodate the park’s construction programme.

David Cox, associate landscape architect of RPS Group Plc, said: “We’re really pleased to see yet another Darwin Escapes scheme is coming together well. The quality of plant stock and efficiency of Johnsons has also been second-to-none.”

It was great to be involved with another Darwin Escapes project and to be working with RPS again. Another Darwin Escapes resort we worked on in 2016, Keswick Reach, won ‘Best Large Park in Britain’ in the 2017 Hoseasons Annual Awards and Norfolk Woods Resort & Spa is sure to be recognised for its luxury and high standards.
