Returning to Wembley Park: ground and podium soft landscapes

01 May 2024 | BALI Member News

Extending the soft landscape collaboration at Wembley Park, Accredited Contractor Goddards will be returning to site at North East Lands this May (2024). The first phase (NE02 & 03), awarded by John Sisk and Sons Limited, will see the delivery and planting of large trees from 40-45cm to 65-70cm girth, plus large multi-stems throughout the design.  The first of these, supplied by Baumschule Lorenz von Ehren, a stunning 60cm girth Catalpa weighing in at over 3500kg, was delivered today (30 April 2024), hoisted up to the podium and will be upright and planted today, too.

Our previous collaboration with Sisk saw the completion of our 2021 BALI Award winning podium landscape at Canada Gardens in the category 'Roof Gardens/Living Wall Installations Commercial Roof Garden or Podium Landscaping Under £500K'.

Two Podium Landscapes

As well as the ground level landscape, we will be constructing two podium gardens within this scheme.  Across the planting plan, we will be supply and planting herbaceous, grasses, shrubs and wildflower turf, as well as reinforced grass and aquatics.

Trees: planting semi-mature trees up to 65-70cm girth

Plants: Herbaceous, shrubs, grasses

Softscape: Wildflower turf, reinforced grass, aquatics

These works will be completed by April 2025.
