Heathrow Airport – Barrier Baskets
We were on cloud nine when we were approached by Cobland Nurseries on behalf of BAA to brighten up one of their busiest airports; Heathrow Airport.
Our creative juices were allowed to flow with this project as Plantscape were entrusted to develop the plant specification for both the summer and winter planters. They were all planted in our insert liners at our nursery and once established placed into the Barrier Baskets on site.
Plantscape’s Barrier Baskets have a clever design and incorporate the special low maintenance features allowing for easy watering and feeding. Their unique design means that planters can go for days without watering.
If ever there was a case to prove how we like to go above and beyond for our clients, our contract with Cobland Nurseries would be first in line. Installation for the barrier baskets had to be done overnight with special security requirements on site. For a secure fitting, our bracket comes in three sizes and fits onto any standard railing and barrier.
However, a special bracket had to be manufactured to fit onto Heathrow’s non-standard railings.
It was all worth it in the end, giving passengers a delightful send off or a warm welcome return.
