Trees please

At last our new community street is turning green as recent days have seen the planting of the garden areas with our signature trees, olives, and cypresses as painted so often in Van Gogh's work. To keep with our overall colour scheme for the van Gogh inspired planting design we have also chosen Gleditsia Sunburst with lovely yellow leaves. I'm sure Vincent would have approved.

The shrubs being used to underplant the trees will be going in very soon. Landscape architect Richard Peckham commented,'Shape are pleased to have helped Grass Routes achieve its vision of making this street a place for people.  Not all the planting is installed yet but a garden is emerging and residents can get a sense of how special a place it will be.'
