New development brings the increased challenges of complying with a variety of legislation. Whiting Landscape are deeply committed to discharging ecology and landscape conditions and enhancing the environment of the new build.
We can ensure that your project makes the most of natural resources, increases biodiversity and protects ecosystems creating new habitats whilst complying with the latest regulations.
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 ecologists to establish the current status of a site in terms of protected species, flora and fauna, birds and reptiles, bats and newts. 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 satisfying for our client and good for the environment.
A landscaping project can rarely be viewed in isolation – it is sure to have an impact on the place and the people in its vicinity. Whiting Landscape can help you to 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 ensure your project has a 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, in turn attracting a wide variety of insects and birds.
