Contractors Kings Landscapes has turned to suppliers Green-tech for the green screens that are part of the extensive landscape plans for a new housing estate in the historic town of Wellingborough, Northamptonshire.
Bovis Homes, an established name in British building is building homes on the Stanton Cross estate, which is being heralded as an exciting, brand-new community. Once complete it will provide more than 3,650 new homes, 1.5m sq foot of industrial, leisure, retail and office space and create around 3,000 new jobs. It will also bring new public parks, schools, and a doctor’s surgery.
Landscaping duites fell to Kings Landscapes, who were contracted to complete the extensive landscaping on behalf of Bovis Homes. This included finding a way to screen off a concrete retaining wall which was visible from the road. They wanted a solution that would provide instant impact and turned to Green-tech for advice.
Green-tech suggested and supplied their 36 1.8m x 1.2m Ivy Green Screens, which are ideal where an instant privacy green fence is required. They are simply inserted into the ground without the requirement for pot or planter and they have specially selected growing media which contains controlled release fertiliser and wetting agents to aid rapid establishment.
Ian Davis, Contracts Manager from Kings Landscapes comments: “The installation went well. Fresh topsoil was installed and trenches dug ready so the installation was quick and easy. The location was next to a balancing pond so the operatives had to wear harnesses, lanyards and life jackets to ensure their safety during the installation. The screens are very effective and we would definitely use them again.”
Green-tech’s green screens are cost effective, quick to install and are excellent alternatives to fencing. They are available in a range of heights, up to 3 metres. For further information visit https://www.green-tech.co.uk/green-roofs-and-living-walls/green-walls-and-ivy-screens
