Johnsons freshens up the grounds of warehouse

One of the UK’s leading commercial nurseries, Johnsons of Whixley, has supplied plants for a major commercial site at Doncaster.

The nursery, based in North Yorkshire, supplied plants to Omega plc’s site at Capitol Park, a 320,000 sq ft warehouse that produces high quality fitted kitchens and furniture.

Johnsons supplied more than 6,000 shrubs which included over 600 Photinia ‘Red Robin’ 2L, 450 Euonymus ‘Emerald ‘n’ Gold’ 2L and 200 Viburnum ‘Eve Price’ 2L.

The supply also included 16 trees over 16-18 girth size, such as Betula pendula, Pyrus chanticleer, Liquidamber styraciflua and 10 MST Amelanchier lamarckii 125-150 size.

Johnsons worked on the project with Ashlea Ltd, the UK’s largest privately-owned landscape contractor, which completed the ground works and on-site planting.

Ellie Richardson, marketing co-ordinator for Johnsons of Whixley, said: “It’s always great to see large quantities of our shrubs going out of the door. It’s also lovely to see photos of the completed project too. As always Ashlea Ltd has done a great job.”

Ashlea Ltd’s Yorkshire contracts manager, Rob Brooks, added: “Ashlea was awarded the soft landscaping package by Tolent Construction for works to be carried out once Omega plc had moved into the new premises.

“This required us to complete a large amount of work in a short space of time with restricted access. Once again, Johnsons were able to deliver on time, meet the specification and site requirements as well as maintaining a high standard of products.”
