Plant supply to new retail and leisure destination at Thorpe Park, Leeds

Working with Gavin Jones Ltd to supply a new retail and leisure destination at Thorpe Park, Leeds.

We supplied nearly 20,000 plants worth more than £60,000 to transform the new leisure and retail complex at Thorpe Park, Leeds.

Thorpe Park is an extension to the existing retail site off Junction 46 of the M1. The park boasts a new shopping area, The Springs, featuring high street giants such as Next, Boots, TK Maxx and M&S Food as well as a cinema, gym and several high-end restaurants.

The adjacent country park has also benefited from our plants and trees, in a scheme design by Ares Landscape Architects Ltd that was installed by landscaping experts Gavin Jones Limited.

Further additions to the complex include a business and enterprise centre, sport and leisure hub and railway station, while 300 new homes will form a residential quarter.

Over 13,000 herbaceous plants were included in the supply, with over 1,500 Geraniums, 1,000 Persicaria Bistorta ‘Superba’, 2,000 Hemerocallis 'Golden Chimes' and over 1,000 Ajuga’s.

A further 7,000 shrubs, grasses and herb varieties were also provided for the 140-acres of parkland and public open spaces.

Gavin Jones Limited senior estimator Ricky Whiteman, said: “It has been great to see the progression of Thorpe Park, the site has really taken shape in the last year, we were appointed by GMI Construction to complete the soft landscaping package, we then called in leading commercial nursery Johnsons of Whixley to supply a large number of plants this really helped put the finishing touches to the scheme”

We have many years’ experience of providing plants to the retail and leisure sector. Recent supplies include the Leicester Costco site and the Spinningfields urban regeneration development in Manchester.
