Now that’s impressive!


 

Here’s a sneak peak of an ongoing project at Edinburgh Airport which we just couldn’t wait to show you. By combining our 1.5m white replica Flowerbombe cone with a standard polished black Kubik, our customer has created an incredible 2.3m fantasy, absolutely perfect for a stunning entrance way. Complimenting this are beautiful 4 ball eucalyptus topiary in the main restaurant areas and soon to be joined by 18m of mixed artificial lavender based troughing – updates to follow!

 

In this case as with most of our replica work, we carried out all the planting up, sealing them in with resin coated slate for the perfect finish. The completed units were then delivered to site for our customer to place – no effort required and an amazing result!


 

Why not join the growing legion of landscapers taking advantage of our replica plant up and delivery service? No chemicals, no mess, no effort and for minimal extra cost. Delivery to your customer’s site even saves you the cost of getting the units and plants to your own site if you were doing the work. So its win win all round.

 

Remember we offer a unique range of stunningly beautiful replica, all sharply contemporary and perfect for the modern urban environment. We can supply FR treated and also in FR rated pots. And we are big in Buxus! Try us for your next replica box hedge quotes – we offer pre built hedges integral to the plater in any size, height, length or shape – including curves.

100% Design in London is the most prominent design show in the whole of the UK and we are exhibiting at 100% Design right now until Saturday 20th of September!! We are launching our brand new Feature Wall range alongside some other new special planters that will released in the coming months. Our Feature Wall has many options of panels including artificial planting, shelves, logos, blanks, and pockets; if you are interested in planting live plants then we can fully hydro-coat the pockets for leak-free planting. The beauty of the system is to mix and match to create the perfect solution for every situation. Use it in receptions to bring alive a company logo. Replace tired artworks with multi-dimensional displays blending colour, form, visuals and plants. Match panel finishes and colours to plant containers, unifying the interior design. As Feature Wall panels are hung like pictures, they can be demounted in seconds, rearranged into a different format and panels swapped allowing seasonal colour schemes, Christmas displays or artwork changes. If you are interested in our Feature Wall then you can request a new brochure for this range by emailing enquire@livingreendesign.com.

 

 

 

Flame Red Bills at Paris Montparnasse

Just four out of 12 Bill 04 Tree planters, 1m in diameter for French Railways, SNCF.

 


Finished in textured Flame Red. These beautiful pots have been made using fire retardant resins and gels to achieve the M1 French fire retardant standard, similar to UK Class 0. All our planters can be similarly specified to be made in these materials giving specifiers unlimited design options for public areas where flame retardant products are essential. Despite having to make this more complex laminate, Livingreen managed to meet a tight deadline for customer Ambius France, delivering the completed job to France 13 working days after the order was placed.

 


 

The planters are now installed at the Paris station Montparnasse. Clearly they are taking no chances in ordering them in flame retardant materials as this is very same station made famous by the 1895 steam train crash. The Granville-Paris Express overran the platform within the station as it was trying to make up for lost time. It was travelling at such a high speed that it careered through a 60cm (2ft) thick wall, shot across a terrace, smashed out the station’s window and plummeted 10m (33ft) below onto the Place de Rennes; and killing an innocent woman below. Due to the negligence of the engine driver, the railway company paid for the woman’s funeral and provided a pension to look after her children. The picture though world famous with a reproduction in ‘real life’ as the frontspiece of a museum chain in Brazil – something for the football supporters perhaps!
