Biodiversity Enhancement

Biodiveristy can be looked at in two ways. Firstly it is the number of species present in a given area and it is the other species that are attracted as a result. Often wildflowers are under specified and only a small number of species considered. We can help boost this and advise on many more that can enhance your scheme. We also have experience in choosing suitable plants for specific insect and mammal habitats.

Green Roofs

Green roofs have become incredibly important in recent years. Traditionally this was sedum matting, often from foreign sources, but now many designers are seeing the benefits of wildflower plug-planted green roofs. We now supply many of the large green roof installers with their plant material.

Reed Beds

A great way of treating grey water is to pass the effluent through a reed bed. The plants will strip nutrients, pollutants including heavy metals from the water, resulting in a cleaner discharge. We grow Phragmites australis (common reed) which is the traditional plant for these systems - but it is possible to use other native species such as Yellow Flag Iris and other species of reed.
