One of the UK’s leading commercial nurseries, Johnsons of Whixley, has supplied over £120,000 plants for two award-winning projects.
The nursery teamed up with professional landscapers, Plant Style Ltd. They offered products to the Great Kneighton, Trumpington, Cambridge development. They also offered products to Tadpole Garden Village in Swindon, Wiltshire.
The development, by Countryside Properties, saw the firm win a gold award. They won it in the ‘Best Public Realm’ category at the prestigious WhatHouse? Awards 2018.
It includes 120 acres of country parkland, lakes and green spaces. It also includes a bird reserve, woodlands, allotments and over 14,000 new trees.
Contracted to complete the landscaping for the project was Plant Style Ltd. The project saw Johnsons supply £30,000 worth of plants. Including 9,000 shrubs – over 1,000 10L Buxus sempervirens and over 300 Skimmia Rubella 5L.
Tadpole Garden Village, by Crest Nicholson Strategic Projects, won a silver award. This was in the ‘Best Public Realm’ category at the WhatHouse? Awards 2018.
Its grounds include a mature woodland, ponds, hedgerows and a 100-acre park to encourage wildlife.
Plant Style Ltd carried out the landscaping for this project too, which included over £90,000 of Johnsons’ plants throughout 2015 to 2018. Varieties included 150 trees over 20-25 girth size, 80 large mixed native hedging units and over 12,000 shrubs and grasses.
