In 2015 Pictorial Meadows were invited to carry out a survey of Bled Golf Course in Slovenia which was undergoing a complete re-design undertaken by  a specialist golf course architect. The course is situated in the foothills of the Alps in an area of outstanding natural beauty much of it untouched by development or cultivation for centuries.

We spent 3 days on site recording existing plant communities and completing detailed surveys of the topography and soil profiles which exist across the landscape. The brief from the owner was to use as many indigenous species, together with complimentary introduced species, in order to create as much colour and interest in the newly developed ‘rough’ areas on the course.

A full design and plant specification for the areas identified during the survey was produced and submitted during winter 2015, including the scope of work to be carried out be our specialist teams in preparing the areas and carrying out all planting and seeding.
