Nottingham Trent University

Highways works outside the University provided an opportunity to improve the front of Clifton Campus with new environmental works.

Nottingham Trent chose to use Pictorial Meadows' perennials as part of a sustainable approach to planting, which provides a fantastic flower display in the Summer for students, staff and the general public, but also enhancing the biodiversity by attracting bees and other pollinators. The meadows now provide colourful displays in the Summer, which can be cut back at the end of the summer term and be ready to flower again for the new academic year in September. Pictorial Meadows were also engaged on a three year maintenance programme, to ensure that the displays would always look their best.

Alan Horgan, Landscape Services Manager for the University commented:

“Pictorial Meadows have a strong reputation in the delivery of quality wildflower seed mixes to meet client needs. The landscape development for the 2012 Olympics further reinforced this reputation with wildflower mixes that not only added great biodiversity value but also visually enhanced the environment of the park”.

“Following our own site visit to the Olympic Park and as part of our own site developments, we felt that Pictorial Meadows were best placed to meet the needs of our own landscape aspirations with it’s range of seed mixes”.
