Horticulture areas of polytunnels and raised planters for children to plant vegetables as part of their learning. This has been very successful in our schools.
Planted areas displayed at entrances to create a good presentation. This occurs on several of our sites where feature gardens are often the first thing you see, often including more variety than a normal shrub bed.
This is becoming more popular around parish councils with open spaces or walkways where a splash of colour makes a big difference. Wildflower meadows can be in bloom for many months. The area is prepared and rotovated before sowing the seeds and then ongoing maintenance.
An all-weather feature, which is popular in play areas at junior schools or pathways. It is fairly easy to maintain and a good option where grass areas may be difficult, especially in the winter.
We are very successful in restoring footpaths where they get lost over the years due to weeds encroaching them. If dressed occasionally, they will remain in better condition.
Used in various places to brighten up an area such as entrances to the village, outside community centres and large planters on road islands. Tubs are re-planted twice a year for year round colour.
Many woodland areas in parishes are neglected and need managing as they are very valuable. We identify what they are used for, maintain them and put together a package to regularly monitor them.
R&G Grounds maintains and revives bog gardens. Below shows pictures before work has taken place.
