The proposed development lands lie on the border of Co. Kilkenny and Co. Waterford in close proximity to Waterford City. MosArt developed a detailed landscape plan for the scheme, which will incorporate substantial sections of the existing mature hedgerows and also focuses on providing screening between buildings and along the periphery of the site. The design of the development with its campus style, expansive layout substantially mitigates its impact on the surrounding landscape.
The proposed plant selection is based on a simple but highly ornamental planting scheme not normally associated with industrial developments. It aims to not only to effectively screen a large proportion of the development but also to hierarchically structure the site through a small but distinct palette of plants. A further important criterion for the plant selection was the provision of seasonal interest.
