Raising the barn: when a client wants to show they don’t do things by half, the planting should pack a visual punch too.
The Billington Group, who’s focus is on food and agriculture sectors, recently opened a showcase site in a converted barn near Solihull. The barn has been fitted throughout with natural materials such as concrete and wood as well as exposed masonry, creating a contemporary feel.
The client named the building The Billington Barn & Kitchen and use it to host meetings and events with staff, suppliers and clients from a range of industries throughout the country, so Urban Planters raised the bar with its planting scheme, elevating it from the everyday to something which would really catch the eye and make a statement.
“This scheme was definitely worth the wait: everyone comments on them. Plants are serviced and maintained regularly at a time that is convenient for our site and any plants that are not happy are soon replaced. All of the Urban Planters team are friendly and professional.”
