Lady Allum Retirement and Care Facility

Lady Allum is a rest home, hospital and special care facility located in an established residential setting in Milford.

LA4 prepared landscape details as part of recent expansion plans. The proposal includes a series of communal spaces, which will cater for the various passive recreational needs of the residents, as well as creating a garden setting offering high levels of amenity and security. The intent of these areas is to provide a variety of experiences throughout the site while maintaining a sense of continuity through common design details and planting framework.

The proposed landscape treatment will also assist in the integration of the built development with the site, streetscape and neighbouring areas. A comprehensive selection of plants are proposed for garden areas throughout the site. The emphasis is on establishment of a more ‘traditional’ style of garden, which is generally the preference of the residents of such facilities.
