Jacks Key - Landscaping
We have delivered landscaping enhancements and provide ongoing maintenance and cleansing services to Jacks Key reservoir in Darwen, Blackburn. The reservoir was decommissioned in 2005 and transformed into a wetland habitat. We are maintaining the wetland area and supporting the grounds maintenance through a number of services.
The site is a former quarry and has a number of environmental and ecologically sensitive constraints which increase in complexity during extreme wet/extreme dry seasons as part of the wetland/ woodland restoration. Although accessible, many areas of the site are boggy, steep and uneven. To maintain access for plant we installed ground protection mats, which reduce ground damage.
