RenewEL were contacted by the prestegious Design Museum in South Kensington to replace a 200m2 area of planting which had died, install a set of steps and a bespoke metal railing in the museum grounds.  This was to enable the community gardening group to safely access the upper terraced area where community growing beds were located.


planting procurement process

The plantsman and garden designer George Hudson had developed planting proposals in keeping with the woodland edge planting palette, including herbaceous perennial species that would provide evergreen cover in winter and flowering plants from April through to October, suitable for the steep slopping herbaceous beds. RenewEL were provided a planting plan showing zones of planting and a schedule which Rachel used to procure the plants from Robin Tachii Plants in Suffolk.


Over 2000 plants were procured and delivered to site on a crisp Spring morning in April 2023. George and Rachel spend a day setting in the plants out across the area and then the team then went to work installing the plants, alongside a few of the community garden volunteers who enjoyed being involved with the process.


The scheme was completed on time and in budget, the client was pleased to have the scheme completed with a quick turnaround before the Summer event programme.
