4th Corner Landscaping have completed planting works at Kingston Park in Abingdon for Trustgreen.
The Soft Landscaping team began working on the site in Kingston Bagpuize in late November, beginning with shrub planting around communal areas and playgrounds.
The team also removed any dead trees that had previously been planted at Kingston Park, replacing them with new ones. They planted 82 trees in total, with varieties including:
- European beech
- Silver birch
- Sweet chestnut
- Field maple
- Sycamore maple
- European pear
- English oak
- Small-leaved lime
- Sweet cherry
- Common hawthorn
- Wild service
- Common whitebeam
- River birch
- Wild cherry
All trees were planted with compost, bone meal fertiliser and irrigation pipes to help prevent drought with the newly planted trees.
By proactively installing a system that will irrigate at the root ball, the tree’s roots will instantly receive much-needed water to aid their growth.
The trees were also double staked to keep them secure and help them to withstand our unpredictable spring weather!
Estates Manager at Trustgreen, Jack Parker, stated: “Bringing 4th Corner onto one of our new sites in Banbury has been a breath of fresh air in 2023. Their attention to detail and willingness to help out when things inevitably crop up has made the process simple and enjoyable. I look forward to continuing to work with 4th Corner as we expand our operations in the region.”
