Green-tech supplies landscaping materials to Leeds Playhouse Gateway Court

This stunning public space is part of the Leeds Playhouse and Leeds City College improvement scheme, which links the two buildings and draws in the city centre, overlooking the new Victoria Centre by Eastgate roundabout.

The new green area is just one part of Leeds’ bid to become the European Capital of Culture for 2023.

The one-acre triangular site, invites connections between the city centre and the main entrance of the Playhouse and campus.

Rising 6m in height from Eastgate roundabout, fully accessible routes are created by a series of shallow ramps, winding their way through pleasant lawned banks, and relaxing seating areas, situated to capture the best of the sun. Low level shrub planting and semi-mature trees add to the calming space.

All of the trees within the landscaped area of Gateway Court are in soft landscaping, situated in either beds or lawned areas. The trees are stabilised by using Green-tech’s Contact 10 strap anchor system.

Far superior and neater than traditional belt and stakes, the kit features wide strapping to prevent damage to the root ball, with a ratchet tensioner to allow adjustment while levelling, and a final tight, secure hold.

To ensure adequate water is delivered to the trees roots during the critical early establishment years, each tree was fitted with Green-tech’s Mona Relief ring. A robust, perforated pipe sits around the root ball and, via a capped filler pipe, provides a cost effective, easy to use irrigation solution.

Terram Rootguard root barrier was also supplied. Manufactured from polypropylene fibres, it is resistant to biodegradation and is ideal for keeping roots away from paving and service lines.

Jordan Webster, Green-tech’s Key Account Manager comments, “Gateway Court is in a key part of Leeds, highly visible to shoppers, commuters, students and theatre-goers. Both architect and contractor have done a fantastic job, turning what was a grey, hard landscaped area into a green oasis in the middle of the city.”

Ricky Whiteman, Head of Estimating North for Gavin Jones Ltd added, “Once again, it was a pleasure to work with Green-tech. The guys fully appreciate that projects are often a moving feast, and it is nice to use a supplier that we can rely on to deliver things when and where we need them.”
