52 trucks of Instant Hedging to Stoke
As part of the regeneration of Potteries Way in Stoke, over 1350 linear metres of Elveden Instant Hedge have been supplied by Practicality Brown. Potteries Way regeneration required an impenetrable and established hedge, which could be quickly installed to meet the completion deadlines set upon Stoke City Council. Inspecting the hedges at our Elveden Nursery, Steve Ralphs, Senior Landscape Architect and his colleagues agreed that our Beech Instant Hedge was the most substantial product they had seen. The Beech Instant Hedge selected was typically 1.8 to 2.0 metres high and 60cm deep. Other areas where planted with 1.4 metres high Instant Hedge.
By liaising closely with the landscape contractor, we were able to deliver hedges in multiples loads, two or three times a day, as access and conditions allowed. Favourable comments were received by Steve Ralphs, both from the local residents and from the Councillors. “The impact has been dramatic” says Steve. The regeneration of Potteries Way included a significant amount of site clearance, turf and semi mature tree planting.
