Back in June we were asked by a local landscaping company, to supply them with some bespoke artificial hedging that they required to complete an ongoing job that they were in the midst of. They created 30 bespoke boxes which were to fit into the pergola that they manufactured themselves to fit into the exterior patio space at the restaurant.

 

 

We were supplied with the boxes in which we needed to fit a bespoke buxus hedging system to the top of them. We created glass fibre tops, this is the best way to be sure that they will last and not collapse or rot away, in which the hedging could be attached to – each hedge was only 20cm tall but they sure make an impact when finished and attached to the boxes.

Once the job was installed by the contractors, we went to see the finished job and take some pictures of the hedges in all of their glory. We loved creating these mini hedges and how something so small managed to bring something so large together. We always revel in having new bespoke projects to create especially when the results are so good and the main thing is, the client is delighted.

Our customer loved our planters so much they’ve ordered a second batch of these!

 

There were a variety of Towik and Barrier planters in which we planted with a variety of our spectacular artificial plants and sealed in so they would be secure in the planters. We finished off the hand-made planters with logos that were each specifically designed to work best on each individual planter thanks to our in house design team.

 

Do you have a customer who would like something like this? We can help you!


 

We can show you how the finished outcome will look before the job has even began with our composite imaging service (£25+VAT per image) and this can help sell eye-catching jobs to your clients so that can visualise your idea. The £25 is reclaimable when the client orders the planters.

We can provide a wide range of artificial plants, our catalogue can be found here , and we can source almost anything so if you can’t find it in our catalogue then just ask and we’ll get on it! We are continually adding to our ranges.

 

 

We can seal in the planting so that it can be instantly installed with no fuss, these can even be sent direct to the client for even easier installation. No need for you to have all the COSHH assessments and data sheets for the chemicals used. We have everything needed right here.


Logos can be applied to any of our planters with ease as we have a professional sign maker within our talented team who can apply whatever our design team size up on our in-house design programmes. There are no limit to the possibilities that you can achieve with our planters; so if you have an idea, no matter how small or how large, then we will endeavour to accomplish everything that you wish to make a superb installation using the UK’s largest manufacturer of GRP planters.

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.

If you were up early enough on Sunday to watch ‘The Andrew Marr Show’ on BBC1 you would have seen a guest appearance made by our Easter Island planters. They were sitting in the cabinet office alongside Andrew and Lord O’Donell (Cabinet Secretary 2005-2011) while they were discussing the constitution and the part it can play in a hung parliament. So you can be safe in the knowledge that no matter who you vote for tomorrow Livingreen Design will keep its place (by the window) in the cabinet office!


 

 

Clearly the Government knows a thing or two about cutting edge design, as our exclusive Easter Island range has become ever more popular, and you can check out the full range on our website here for the planters http://www.livingreendesign.com/category/37-grp-easter-island-planter.aspx and here for the barrier http://www.livingreendesign.com/category/38-grp-easter-island-barrier-planter.aspx. There are many possibilities of combinations that can be created using the 3 different planters we have available.
