Soft Landscaping at Service Station
A £60 million Leeds Skelton Lake Services on Junction 45 of the M1 has been completed during the Covid-19 Pandemic.
Brambledown Landscapes Services were responsible for constructing natural landscaping throughout the 30-acre service station site.
They have a long-standing relationship with Green-tech, who supplied the majority of the landscaping materials. These included over 200 tonnes of Green-tree topsoil, 150 tonnes of compost, 300m3 of bark mulch, in excess of 7000 Tubex Shrub Shelters. In addition, all of the tree ancillaries, which included stakes, belting, blocks and irrigation for circa 500 newly planted trees.
For the trees planted into the hard-landscaped area, Green-tech supplied in the region of 100m² of the urban tree planting system ArborRaft, along with 100 tonnes of ArborRaft soil and subsoil.
Used together, the system combines geo-cellular ArborRaft units which lock together within the tree pit and nutrient-rich ArborRaft soil. Combined they provide essential load bearing support and reduce soil compaction within the tree pit to enable healthy root growth.
