Ashlea Ltd and Johnsons team up to help Waterfront Business Park bloom

One of the UK’s largest landscaping companies, Ashlea Ltd, has teamed up with commercial nursery Johnsons of Whixley to enhance the grounds of the new Waterfront Business Park in Barrow-In-Furness.

The £3.5m project comprises of offices, workshops and industrial buildings that are already home to several businesses including BAE, which has occupied a sizeable unit since phase one of the scheme opened in 2017.

Located at the gateway to Britain’s ‘energy coast’, the development is regarded as a hotspot for growing businesses.

The team at Ashlea completed the groundworks and planting for the grounds of the business park, choosing to work with long-term supplier Johnsons of Whixley to provide the plants.

Johnsons supplied trees, hedging, grasses and shrubs for the scheme, including varieties such as Betula pendula, Pinus Nigra, Miscanthus sinensis, Stipa tenuissima, Crataegus monogyna, Prunus spinosa and Viburnum opulus.

Ashlea Ltd’s contracts director Wayne Dand says: ”Once again, Johnsons of Whixley has excelled themselves with the quality of plants, trees and service provided. The coastal landscape design of ornamental grasses is starting to develop well.”
