Press Room: Green-tech screens a hit at supermarket car park

Green-tech screens a hit at supermarket car park

Leading landscape supplier Green-tech, which is celebrating its 25th year of trading, was called in to help AWS Landscapes with a screening issue for a Nottinghamshire supermarket.

Ivy screening

German-based discount grocery chain Aldi in Retford had large and unsightly air conditioning units in the car park which bosses wanted to screen from their customers.

They commissioned Doncaster-based AWS Landscapes to propose some kind of fencing which would blend in with the surroundings to disguise the area around the air conditioning units. AWS Landscapes turned to Green-tech to source and install an environmentally friendly option; gt Green Screens, which would provide instant screening, added security, yet look pleasing to the eye.

AWS Landscapes is a nationwide family-run landscape contractor which offers a comprehensive range of landscaping services throughout the UK to commercial companies, local authorities and landscape architects.

Green-tech supplied them with 20 three-metre high gt Green screens. These have been installed around the industrial air conditioning units as a safety precaution and to be more visually pleasing to the eye. The gt Green Screens create an instant, established ‘hedge’ in keeping with the existing surroundings.

Taking only days to install, the 1.2 long by 3m high Ivy gt green screens provide much needed ‘green’ coverage, offer quick establishment and the versatility for inclusion in a number of different applications.

Each gt Green Screen contains eight pots holding Hedera ivy plants, a particularly reliable climber that is known to be especially frost resistant. They are ideal to act as an outdoor privacy screen to hide unsightly areas, security fencing, balcony screens or just to break up and add interest to an outside space. Biodiversity can be added to the gt Green Screens with the addition of climbers, to give more impact and colour and attract wildlife.

Mark Winwood, Senior Estimator from AWS Landscapes, said: “In this instance a normal timber fence would not have worked, so I decided upon a green screen. Working with Green-tech, I sent details to Aldi’s architects who were delighted with the concept and gave us the confirmation to carry out the work.

“I placed the order and was given a delivery date. The gt Green Screens were delivered on time and in perfect condition. Once the screens were installed, they looked amazing. Aldi are over the moon with how they looked; as are we. I always get great service from Green-tech and our advisor Chris Cross; and would highly recommend Green-tech and gt Green Screens to everyone.”
