South Tyneside Council

South Tyneside Council commissioned Pictorial Meadows to sow annual seed mixes on 63 separate sites across 17 wards. The work was completed across three weeks with the sites looked stunning all summer right up to the first frosts.

The strategy the Council and Pictorial Meadows took to deal with such large areas, over 14 hectares of grassland!, was to only sow the front edges of the grassland with annual meadow seeds and allow the grass to grow longer at the back where it was largely hidden by the flowering spectacle in front!

2015 was the second season that the Council have used Pictorial Meadows seeds as part of their cost-cutting exercise to reduce the expense of gang-mowing their grass areas.
