‘FPCR staff donned their wellies over lunchtime to plant 5 trees in the grounds of Lockington Hall today’. Four oak trees were planted in the rear gardens with a Tulip Tree planted in the more formal front garden. These will replace trees that have been lost over recent years.
FPCR was established in 1957 and in 1974 came to Lockington Hall. The building is set within a large garden within a wider parkland setting and includes formal lawns, a pond and an orchard. The practice maintains the hall and the grounds and over the years has held a number of events in the garden. As an environmental and design practice, FPCR is keen to help to regenerate the character of the grounds to the hall.
As a practice we are involved in a wide range of projects including masterplanning, concept design, detailed submissions and landscape character assessment.
