Green Screens installed on new housing estate provides instant impact


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.


reen-tech has supplied 36 1.8m x 1.2m green screens to Kings Landscapes as part of their extensive


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 commented, “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 three metres.

In a world where terror is an ongoing threat, Kingsland School, in Kingstanding, Birmingham, is one of the first to fit Lockdown from ERA, the UK’s first emergency barricade device able to lock down a door in seconds in a crisis situation, helping to protect school children. Designed to provide high performance security in the event of a threatening situation, Lockdown is ideal for schools as it is simple and easy to fit, making doors inaccessible to intruders and creating a safe hiding place for students and teachers in the event of an attack. Lockdown’s unique design ensures it is stronger and more robust than a regular lock as it secures the full door, not just at one point. Additionally, unlike a thumb turn lock, where the room can be accidentally or mischievously locked by students, Lockdown is always intentionally deployed. Carol Stephenson, school business manager at Kingsland School said: “Initially, we were attracted by how easy Lockdown is to deploy – we had a demonstration and could immediately see it had been designed with simplicity in mind – something that was incredibly important to us. We decided it was the right product for our school of 327 pupils.”

Converting traditional hard landscaped car parks into softer landscaped green space applies to both commercial car parks and domestic driveways. Specifiers can turn those large parking areas into sustainable green vistas with sustainability built in. With new builds or on extensions to existing car parks, developers are enjoying a bigger green envelope by the adopting grass paving car parks. To achieve the green vistas, maximum and sustainable grass cover is best guaranteed by a system that promotes permeability. The depth and shape of the soil pockets therefore has a critical part to play if grass cover is to be sustained. Both Grasscrete and Grassblock offer substantial capacity for soils and root systems to promote maximum grass coverage. The permeability features of grass paving addresses SUDS issues where hard landscaping can provide too much run-off, whereas the more permeable grass paving mitigates surface water run-off and its implications for the local storm water network. When cast-on site is not an option Grassblock provides easy install precast blocks. Wakefield based Grass Concrete Ltd and the proven Grasscrete product has become the generic name for permeable grass paving with over forty years of installations.
