Here at Kafften Limited we pride ourselves on the sensitive works we have undertaken, utilising specialist systems and materials to help bring an historic building back to its former glory. Building restoration, in terms of historic preservation, refers to the action and processes required to accurately reveal, recover or represent the state of an historic building and at the same time protecting its heritage. Air pollution, acid rain and the sun often take a toll on historic buildings. We undertake restorations and replacements utilising specialisms to reproduce materials of an earlier time which may have now failed or which are in many cases environmentally unsound, for example materials which were made with arsenic, or certain materials which are no longer available.
The beautiful award-winning Garden - originally designed by Thomas Mawson in 1912 which has been restored with Heritage Lottery funding and is open to all.
The Rose Garden is listed Grade II on the Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest.
The Bushey Rose Garden is divided into two sections consisting of the sunken panel rose garden and the lawn area surrounded by mixed shrub beds.
Within the park are a number of structures which are Grade II listed including the Column which marks the entrance to the former Art School, the Monument (fountain) at the centre of the sunken garden and the Summer House which straddles the two sections of the garden.
The project included the restoration of the garden, its grade II listed buildings and structures, hard landscaping and historic planting.
The Restoration of the listed features in the garden which includes the Summer House, Monument (Fountain), and Column, as well as reconstructing paths, paved areas, pergola, replanting of the formal gardens, and the reinstatement of seating and other features which had been lost.
