School Children help out with Tree Planting
Brambledown Landscape Services Ltd Yorkshire Branch have been involved in a wonderful tree planting exercise with local school children in Warrington.
Brambledown Landscapes are currently in the midst of a £400k soft landscaping project on the prestigious new mega Greenheart office space site, which is now one of Warringtons busiest Business Parks.
As part of an educational Programme, lead by Nick Rogers of Brambledown Landscapes, and Nick Wright from Place on Earth Landscape Design, Brambledown welcomed a class of local schoolchildren onsite to watch a fascinating tree planting demonstration by Brambledown staff. The school children were given knowledge on soil types, soil depths, tree pits, types of trees used in certain climates, and also tree protection and tree staking. The school children were then allowed to take part in a supervised tree planting session of their own, which they all thoroughy enjoyed.
At Omega Warrington, meadows and a wetland area and new wildlife habitats have been introduced by Brambledown Landscapes.
Omega Warrington Ltd (OWL) instructed Brambledown to carry out these extensive planting works, and soft landscape operations are well underway by Brambledown Landscapes.
The Greenheart is in the middle of the site, north of the new Barrow Hall Primary School and south of the Domino’s building.
It is hoped that NEWTS and skylarks could make their home in a new parkland being introduced close to one of Warrington’s biggest business parks.
Once all works are completed, the Greenheart will be a beautiful greenspace that Omega workers and residents in Warrington can enjoy.”
Cultivation and seeding of wildflora meadows and wetland wildflora in September will bring colour to the Greenheart next spring and summer according to the developers and in the forthcoming winter period new woodland areas will be established with the planting of thousands of mixed deciduous and evergreen tree species, and new hedgerow.
The new Greenheart will be publicly accessible and will be used by children from Barrow Hall Primary School on Sofia Drive.
Other parts of the site have been designed with restricted public access so that established wildlife (such as the great crested newt and skylarks) can flourish and organisers are hopeful that a new and a diverse range of species will make it their home.
