The Burns Garden
Horizon works with Aberdeenshire Council's Landscape Services to help manage the Burns Garden.
There, we feed and prune the roses, tend to the heathers and help to generally keep the place tidy.

Horizon was approached by residents of a newly-built housing estate who asked for help with a small area of derelict land to the north of Cowie Mill, next to one of the main roads into Stonehaven.
A local building contractor kindly used his digger to clear the land of brambles and scrub, and a membrane was put down to suppress any further unwanted growth.

Horizon carries out litterpicks in Mineralwell Park and will shortly be involved in a tree-planting project there.
