We can ensure that your project makes the most of natural resources, increases biodiversity and creates new habitats whilst keeping up to date with the latest legislation.
This is not just good for the environment and society, it’s also good for our clients. Companies who genuinely commit themselves to green issues and social responsibility find it easier to gain the trust, loyalty and respect of those who come into contact with them, whether customer, shareholder or employee.
There is a legal requirement to assess the ecological impact of a commercial landscaping project. We work closely with fully qualified ecology teams to establish the current status of the site in terms of protected species, flora and fauna, birds and reptiles.
By making the assessment at a pre-development stage, any issues can be resolved early on and necessary design considerations incorporated. We then oversee every part of the project, safeguarding the ecological balance of the scheme, to ensure a result that is good for our client, good for the environment.
A landscaping project can rarely be seen in isolation – it is sure to have an impact on the place and the people in its vicinity. Whiting Landscape can help you create a project that fulfils the essential requirements of sustainability, covering environmental and social factors.
For example, we coordinate the transportation of materials and plants to minimise the use of fuel, and where possible utilise non-toxic, reusable local materials. We can advise on such factors as the visual impact of the site, drought tolerant planting and effective drainage. A landscape project that achieves sustainability is more likely to be welcomed by the local community and all involved with it.
Whiting Landscape employ the most modern landscaping techniques to make sure your project has a very positive effect on the environment through encouraging biodiversity. Part of this involves specifying a wide range of plants that will survive and thrive in the local soil and climate, but it can extend well beyond that.
For example, where appropriate a habitat can be created that encourages nesting and feeding for a wide variety of birds, which can greatly enhance the appeal of the landscaping. The birds in turn help to control insects, reducing or eliminating the need for artificial methods. This is biodiversity in action, a dynamic component that will naturally enhance your project on a permanent basis.Get in touch with us to find out more
