14 different species

We were delighted to work with New Square on this long-awaited scheme to help totally transform West Bromwich town centre. The two walls were the final touches to the central piazza landscaping, providing natural colour and foliage all-year round. Plants such as Carex morrowii 'Silver Sceptre', Hebe pingufolia 'Pagei', Pachysandra terminalis and Phyllitis scolopendrium were amongst the 14 plant species in the walls.
