The Dart Marina project is well and truly underway, soon to create an enticing green space that will connect the hotel to the River Dart Marina. The terraces and main lawn are already taking shape, with the decked walkway scheduled to follow shortly. The green oak sleeper walls are starting to give a real solidity to the formal structure of the garden, which will be softened when we plant up the terraces with shrubs and perennials selected for their drought tolerance and biodiversity value. The main impact will be provided by three 4 meter high Quercus ilex (holm oak) trees which we look forward to maneuvering into position next week. The contractors are on a tight schedule to build the garden in just five weeks, so watch this space for more images as the garden nears completion.
