Collins Landscapes Ltd operatives were busy last week preparing an area of wasteland in Middleton to be converted into an allotment for a local charity. After clearing away all the overgrowth the team rotovated the land to allow for planting new crops that can be used to provide food for local veterans.
Team have just completed a major clean-up of the block paving around commercial offices in Trafford. Our mobile water bowser enabled us to get in close and clear the dirt from the block paving around the site with minimal disruption to the employees of the offices. It was amazing to be able to see just how much muddy water was cleared from the pathways. A job well done!
We met with teachers and a class of primary school children to discuss what they wanted for the area directly outside their classroom window. They looked out onto just a green field, so this project helped create different areas that will be used for different things through the year. It includes a raised vegetable garden, a woodchip pathway surrounded by recycled tyre planters and a line of fruit trees which will soon be in blossom. For the remainder of the school year the group can add new projects and ideas to the garden area, which can be used to teach the kids about wildlife, growing plants, the importance of recycling and about getting fresh air. More importantly though, it has given the class a space within the playground that is theirs, and that in years gone by they can say that they helped to design and look after it for future generations.
