Broadwas CE Primary School

Wilson Associates Garden Design were approached by a neighbour for advice on a small planting scheme on a border at the front of Broadwas CE Primary School.

The school had a small budget which was kindly funded by Broadwas Parish Council to mark the Queen's 90th Birthday. However, following discussions I soon recognised that this budget would not stretch very far!

In order to maximise the impact of the budget and planting scheme I offered to design, source and plant the border free of charge. 

I even managed to include a few pollinator friendly plants and members of the schoos Gardeningn Club enjoyed planting the final plants and bulbs. 

Look forward to the plants maturing and border taking shape.  

  


Former RAF Shobdon War Memorial 

Wilson Associates Garden Design worked with a number of companies and Shobdon Primary School to help complete the RAF Shobdon war memorial. Last year members of the Herefordshire Aero Club created a wonderful memorial to all of those who served at RAF Shobdon during WW2. This memorial was commemorated on 11 Sep 2016, and the names of the 19 who gave their lives are inscribed on the granite memorial plaque.

Having used all of their funds to build the memorial, the team were in need of horticultural and landscaping support. So on Armistice Day 2016 a call for support went out to local horticultural and landscaping companies asking for free plants and free landscaping advice. Martyn and the team of volunteers planted the 270 Buxus, 350 Hornbeam hedge plants and an Olive tree that were generously donated by local nurseries. 

As a an ex-military man and veteran of the Royal Air Force, Martyn Wilson was very honoured to support this great and fitting tribute.
