The ‘shed’ had been completed, but it looked a little plonked in the landscape. The programme makers needed a mature wildflower meadow, and they needed it now!
On the hottest day of the year, the whole Green & Gorgeous team turned up to take delivery of multiple articulated lorry loads of mature Wildflower Turf. Being delivered at over 1.2m tall, the transport and handling of the turf was a challenge, particularly in the heat! Two of the team here keep a sense of humour about the 9.30pm finish ….
Once laid it did immediately make the landscape look like it had been untouched during construction of the shed!
A promotional photo from the show shows the host, Kevin McCloud sitting amongst our beautiful established wildflower meadow! Smoke & mirrors …. but a wonderful project to be involved with.
