Plants complete Meadowhall overhaul
Being part of the huge transformational refurbishment of Yorkshire’s premier shopping destination required fine-detail planning and creative flair for the planting to finish it off.
Research has shown that the presence of plants in shopping areas increases shopper staying time and a general feeling of wellbeing and relaxation, so Meadowhall was aware that the planting would be integral to the success of the centre’s refurbishment.
Urban Planters South Yorkshire worked on the planting scheme for two years, making visits to the plant suppliers in The Netherlands to select the right plants, creating bespoke planters in the right shade and texture and ensuring throughout that they coordinated their logistics with the many different services on site.
We also measured the varying light and temperature levels around the shopping centre to find plants which could thrive in all parts of the building, so we could create uniform clusters of planting throughout.
