At sites where machine planting is not feasible due to accessibility, obstacles or other factors, it is possible to plant flower bulbs and/or perennials by hand instead. Lubbe & Sons offers hand planting of flower bulbs or bulb mixes as a service to its clients. Our perennials are always planted by hand.
Community involvement in hand planting of flower bulbs
Planting by hand can also provide a fun activity as part of a community participation project. In this way, residents gain a better understanding of the local environment and therefore greater appreciation of the public space. Our team has taken part in many projects where the public was also involved. Lubbe & Sons can assist you in setting up and implementing community involvement projects.
local communication with citizens and residents
civic participation, when citizens provide advice and supervision of planting
A green and flowering roundabout in public spaces can be a colourful focal point for the environment. Lubbe & Sons designs, plants and maintains many of such roundabouts throughout United Kingdom. In each design, the actual line of sight of road users is taken into account when choosing plants of different heights. The planting must of course be done safely, but it must also limit inconvenience to traffic as much as possible. For the most part, the plants used on roundabouts are perennials, although flower bulbs (mixtures) also look good at these junctions. This planting on roundabouts is usually done by hand.
