Johnsons of Whixley has recently teamed up with Evoke Landscape Design Ltd to create an outdoor learning area at Hightown Junior Infant & Nursery School, Liversedge.
The junior school already has an extensive allotment and orchard on the grounds as well as an area for rearing chickens and ducks.
The new area designed by Bradford landscape design business Evoke will further enhance the outdoor learning space and hopes to encourage wildlife. With 120 used tyres from a local garage added to create a living retaining wall around the new area, the tyres have been filled with sensory plants from Johnsons of Whixley. Plant supply included lavenders, rosemary, heathers, thyme, mint and a range of grasses and other herbaceous plants.
Marketing coordinator, Eleanor Richardson from Johnsons of Whixley, said:
“It was fantastic to team up with longstanding customer Evoke Landscape Design Ltd to enhance the outdoor learning area of Hightown Junior Infant & Nursery School, we hope the children and teachers enjoy this space for many years to come.”
Headteacher at Hightown Junior Infant & Nursery School, Mr Russell Ingleby, added:
“We are delighted with the work that Evoke Landscaping has completed in the school grounds. We are looking forward to seeing how the carefully chosen plants and shrubs add to the outdoor experience for years to come.”
