The Queens Statue, Newmarket Racecourse, Suffolk

The Brief

To plant bespoke grown trees on a framework to create an evergreen pleached screen as the backdrop to a newly commissioned statue of Queen Elizabeth II in the year of her 90th birthday from the town of Newmarket, Suffolk.

The Challenge

The framework and the pleaching had to be created in a curved S shape to accentuate the curved plinth. We worked with Barcham trees who grew the trees in order to construct the framework in this shape.
