Apprentices make a splash in flood management

Thanks to National Lottery players, young people from across the region have been learning how to implement small-scale natural flood management techniques in the Yorkshire Dales to help mitigate flood damage across the Aire valley. It’s part of a rural apprenticeship scheme led by local charity Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust (YDMT) which provides opportunities for young people to stay and work in the area that they grew up in, whilst gaining skills and experience in landscape management, horticulture and conservation. The apprentices recently came together in Malhamdale to discover the merits of a variety of natural flood management techniques that…

The benefits and evolution of zero turn mowers

Zero turn mowers are perfect for anyone who wants to reduce the amount of time they spend mowing. The bigger your lawn and the more turns required to mow, the more time you can save with a zero turn mower. A zero turn mower has, quite simply, a turning radius of zero degrees. This means the mower can turn within its own footprint. This technology is generally used by professional landscape contractors, because of the benefits that come with it, and the price tag normally associated with it. However, the cost of zero turn machinery has begun to fall in line…

Alexandra secures end-user support

The job of product specification seems to be getting harder and harder. Many turn to the internet for inspiration, but, far from making the job easier, the dizzying array of product options and choices tends to confuse as much as inform. When it comes to fencing, everyone wants something that looks good, but this product has a far more vital role, namely keeping the property and individuals within the perimeter safe and secure, which is why many specifiers feel the pressure of making the right choice. Most end users play safe and simply hand the project over to a contractor,…

Sayes Court Park launches crowdfunding campaign

A historic park in Deptford, south-east London, has launched a crowdfunding page to raise money to explore ideas for its expansion. A park once three times the current size, Sayes Court will soon reclaim this lost land and leap the fence into the Convoys Wharf development. Before that happens, Sayes Court Park ‘will be the community-led testing ground where we imagine and plan what that future will look like’. The aim is to ‘transform this neglected park into a source of pride for Deptford and a destination for London. This legacy is an invitation to test, grow and transform a…

Funding boost for local authorities to transform local communities

The government has launched a £54m package to transform local communities and release land for thousands of new homes. The package comes as part of a new cross-government partnership to make smarter use of government-owned property. DCLG’s £45m ‘Land Release Fund’, launched in partnership with the Cabinet Office and Local Government Association’s One Public Estate programme, will ensure local councils release some of their unused or surplus land for housing. This will help to meet the ambition to unlock enough council-owned land for at least 160,000 homes by 2020. Councils can now bid for funding for land remediation and small-scale infrastructure,…

DuPont™ Plantex® GroundGrid® ensures the stability of an elegant new gravel driveway design

When Outerspace undertook a project to completely strip out a large residential front garden, removing a traditional linear block-paved drive and side lawn, the landscaping experts knew they needed a high-performance solution to give structural stability to their elegant new design. Plantex® GroundGrid® proved to be the answer to ensuring both the integrity and minimal maintenance of the gravel-laid renovation. The previous narrow approach and parking space had become a problem for the large extended family that owns the house, making for very tight turns or tricky reversing, especially when other cars were visiting. The family also felt there was…
