03.4 RHS Harlow Carr

Rootstock are in the early stages of a project at RHS Harlow Carr, working on aspects of the 2016 Master Plan to create a climate adaptation strategy for Harlow Beck, the stream that runs through the heart of the gardens.

Collaborating with Civic Engineers, the project draws on detailed studies of the flow of water through the gardens, from the scale of catchment area down to contouring, bank re-profiling and stream diversion. Our first stage of work has created a toolkit of interventions along the tributaries that feed into the beck- we’ll update this page as the project develops.
