Help for Heroes

Help for Heroes’ new Naval Service Recovery Centre in Plymouth provides accommodation and rehabilitation facilities for injured serving and veteran members of all three armed forces.

The centre has the largest rehabilitation pool in the country, as well as a wide range of other vital medical services for injured personnel.

Urban Planters South West was tasked with designing a planting scheme which would help to create a calm atmosphere around the facilities, including the waiting areas for medical treatment, to help combat any stress prior to appointments for treatment such as physiotherapy.

Gingka orchids, Ficus ‘Bonsai’ and Japanese oriental bamboo were selected to create a serene feel. Due to the high security around the site, replica plants were selected to avoid maintenance visits.

Outside, the organisation wanted planting to break up the vast expanse of shiny metal used on the building’s façade, which can be very bright on sunny days, so three Magnolia trees were planted along the front to break up the look of the metal work.

A specially-commissioned statue is planned for the front of the building and, in preparation, Urban Planters planted hedging to both protect and frame the artwork once it arrives.
