Plantscape is the UK’s leading civic floral display specialist. We supply award-winning displays to councils, housebuilders, the healthcare sector, and businesses across the UK.
Plantscape was approached by Broxbourne Borough Council to provide colour and vibrancy to their streets for the 2012 Olympics. Broxbourne was proud to be hosting the White Water Canoe Slalom competition at the purpose-built, state of the art, artificial White Water Centre in Lee Valley Park.
Plantscape was approached by Broxbourne Borough Council to help provide colour and vibrancy to their streets for the 2012 Olympics. Broxbourne was proud to be hosting the White Water Canoe Slalom competition at the purpose-built, state of the art, artificial White Water Centre in Lee Valley Park.
82 Athletes were competing in the White Water Canoe Slalom competitions for four Olympic gold medals as part of the London 2012 Olympic Games and Plantscape were proud to be at the centre of the excitement and ultimately play a part in the greatest sporting event in the world.
Our creative juices were allowed to flow with this project as Plantscape was entrusted to develop the plant specifications for both the summer and winter planters. They were all planted in our insert liners at our nursery and once established placed into the Barrier Baskets on site. Plantscape supplied, watered and maintained 34 hanging baskets, 260 barrier baskets and 140 Holestar lamp post planters.
Plantscape’s Barrier Baskets have a built-in 7 day watering system that incorporates special low maintenance features allowing for easy watering and feeding. Their unique design means that planters can go for days without watering. If ever there was a case to prove how we like to go above and beyond for our clients, our contract with Broxbourne Borough Council would be first in line.
Installation for the barrier baskets had to be done very early in the morning or at night to make sure there was no disruption to traffic. For a secure fitting, our bracket comes in three sizes and fit onto any standard railing and barrier and we had no issue with any vandalism during the entire summer.
Broxbourne Borough Council were over the moon with the planters and displays. They really made Broxbourne stand out as an Olympic site, giving Olympic visitors and passengers a delightful welcome, a fantastic stay and a warm farewell.
