Creating Wildflower Areas
From meadows to green roofs, we have installed a number of wildflower areas over the years - either as one-offs, or that we have continued to care for alongside our general maintenance schedule on our exterior sites.
Wildflower areas don't just afford sites that familiar idylic aesthetic: they play a vital role in preserving and protecting ecosystems - by introducing just a small area of wildflowers to a site we are improving the health of the soil and creating a habitat for pollinators; the diverse range of leaf types within a wildflower area capture more pollutants, improving air quality; the introduction of natural green spaces in to our work and social spaces inevitably provide long term benefits to our mental health.
Varieties of bees, butterflies, beetles, hoverflies and other pollinators have come close to extinction - as land is developed they lose their habitats and sources of nectar. By re-introducing wildflower areas where possible we can support them to thrive.
