Green-tech's urban tree planting materials for £15m project

Glasgow Fort Retail Park is one of Scotland’s largest and most popular ‘out of town’ shopping destinations with 100 outlets and parking for 2,500 vehicles.

It has a catchment area covering in the region of 2 million people and circa 100 retail and leisure outlets covering over 800,000sq ft.

Award-winning commercial landscaper Grace Landscapes won the landscaping upgrade contract which included landscaping vast borders across the site and planting of 12m tall semi-mature Birch trees and native Pines, to echo the surrounding Scottish woodlands.

Green-tech supplied everything required for the successful planting and development of the trees, shrubs and overall planting scheme which included sixty tree anchoring systems and irrigation systems.

More than 1,000 tonnes of Green-tree top soil, Green-tree Intensive Roof Garden Substrate and Green-tree Amenity tree soil was also supplied for the planting of the trees and throughout the entire landscaping scheme.

Shrubs in the borders surrounding the shopping complex were top dressed with the 210m3 of bark mulch that Green-tech also supplied.

Darren Hardman, Regional Contract Manager (NE), Grace Landscapes said: “This is a prestigious project and one which we were proud to have won. We have worked with Green-tech for many years and they always offer us appropriate and helpful advice, fast and accurate delivery and competitive prices.

"Green-tech always has the items in stock and can delivery quickly to site. We will be using them for phase 3 and have no hesitation recommending them.”

Head of Green-tech Sales Richard Gill said: “We have a great relationship with Grace Landscapes and it was a pleasure to help them on this project. They always involve us early on which gives us time to explore the most suitable products to fit the job and the budget they are working to.

"Their work is always outstanding and we are proud to have been involved in such a prestigious project.”

The landscaping for this high-profile development has been well received and Grace Landscapes has recently commenced Phase 3 of this project. They have confirmed that Green-tech is their preferred supplier.
