Green Screens installed on new housing estate provides instant impact
Green-tech has supplied 36 1.8m x 1.2m green screens to Kings Landscapes as part of their extensive landscape plans for a new housing estate in the historic town of Wellingborough in 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 ft of industrial, leisure, retail and office space and create around 3,000 new jobs. It will also bring new public parks, schools, a doctor’s surgery and much more.
Leading Landscape Contractor Kings Landscapes was 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 Ivy Green Screens which are perfect for landscaping work or projects 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 said,
“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.
