In the Summer, Horizon provides the Beach Toilets with window boxes brimming with colourful flowers. Our 3-tier planter is also situated just around the corner.

For the benefit of walkers, prams and wheelchair users, along the Boardwalk Horizon frequently sweeps away sand brought inland by stormy seas. Horizon worked alongside the Beechgrove Garden and Stonehaven & District Lions club to create the seating areas toward the south end of the walkway. In the past we have scattered wildflower seeds beside the Boardwalk and organised public beach litterpicks.

At the Craw's Nest, Horizon looks after some of the planters and we have created a mosaic artwork.

The Wave Garden
Horizon worked together with the Stonehaven & District Lions Club to carry out a major re-vamp of the Wave Garden at the north end of the bay. Work began in May 2017.
Alex Cattanach cleared the site for us in a day.
