One of our favourite trade mags, ProLandscaper, has put together a Manchester supplement for their April issue, which brilliantly features Warnes McGarr & Co landscape and garden designers not once but twice.
Our upcoming work with the team at RHS Tatton to design and build The Poisonous Garden for their prestigious Cheshire garden and flower show in July has been featured. As we move into May, we are really ramping up the planning for this amazing huge exhibit!
Our garden designer Michael John McGarr was also asked to contribute some thoughts for a feature about the Northern Forest that was announced this year by the Woodland Trust. This new forest will see 50 million trees planted over 25 years and will stretch from Liverpool to Hull, working with community partners.
This is a really ambitious project and great news to receive, especially in terms of the environment. My comment for the article also brought up urban planting, and how we also need to see some serious investment to increase greenery and planting within cities to combat pollutants in the air, reduce flood risk and for the well-being of city dwellers, as well as more research and development around vertical planting.
Overall, this is a great supplement, with some excellent case studies from Manchester-based landscape and garden designers so well worth a look. We recommend grabbing a brew and reading a copy.
