We teamed up with one of the UK’s largest landscaping companies, Ashlea Ltd to help the grounds of the new Waterfront Business Park in Barrow-In-Furness bloom.

The Challenge

The £3.5 million project comprises of offices, workshops and industrial buildings that are already home to several businesses including BAE, that has occupied a sizeable unit since phase one of the scheme opened in 2017.

Located at the gateway to Britain’s ‘energy coast’, the development is regarded as a hotspot for growing businesses.

Plants supplied needed to be suitable for the coastal location and needed to fit in with the newly built offices.

The Solution

The team at Ashlea completed the groundworks and planting for the grounds of the business park.

Johnsons supplied trees, hedging, grasses and shrubs for the scheme, including varieties such as Betula pendula, Pinus Nigra, Miscanthus sinensis, Stipa tenuissima, Crataegus monogyna, Prunus spinosa and Viburnum opulus.

The Result

Working with our long-standing customer Ashlea Ltd was a pleasure the coastal landscape design is now blooming thanks to our plants.

Ashlea Ltd Contracts Director Wayne Dand said: ”Once again Johnsons has excelled themselves with the quality of plants, trees and service provided. The coastal landscape design of ornamental grasses is starting to develop well.”
