With UK construction and associated infrastructure continuing apace, a new development in Berkshire has been a recent project for Wildflower Turf Ltd.
Buckler’s Park in Crowthorne, Berkshire, is located on the former Transport Research Laboratory site and is comprised of 1,000 high-quality, contemporary-styled homes.
Adjacent to a new country park and with over 100 acres of parkland and open space, several key areas of the site are now enhanced with wildflowers provided by Wildflower Turf Ltd.
The developers of Buckler’s Park, Legal & General Homes, have aimed to provide a sustainable environment that is in keeping with the natural areas that border the development. To ensure a seamless transition, Legal & General Homes specified wildflowers within the designated Public Open Space area of their design and contactors, Benchmark Grounds Maintenance Ltd (http://www.benchmark-gm.co.uk/) contacted Wildflower Turf Ltd for advice and assistance.
In November 2017, Wildflower Turf Ltd supplied 950m² of Border Non-Native turf to the project, with installation completed by Benchmark Grounds Maintenance Ltd.
Border Non-Native turf was installed within the specified Public Open Space adjacent to the Show Homes, providing the area with some wildflower magic! With minimal maintenance required, the turf is looking fantastic and will provide a riot of colour as well as providing a sustainable and bio-diverse habitat for birds, bees and other species.
Project Coordinator at Benchmark Grounds Maintenance Ltd, Emma McCarthy, has been thrilled with the ease of installation and resulting appearance, saying, “We were very impressed with the quality of the Wildflower turf and the staff were very accommodating to our needs and requirements. If we require Wildflower turf in the future, we would be more than happy to use this product and company again”.
