Boost won for Barton Grange

Barton Grange Landscapes is smoothing its passage through the choppy economic climate with a series of contract wins across the private sector.

Managing director Peter Topping said his 40-staff firm recently won a tender for a £200,000 landscape and 1km path around a new distribution centre.

"There will be hydroseeding, swales and planting as well as the footpath," he said. "We are due to finish this Christmas."

The landscape contractor based in Preston, Lancashire, started building a memorial garden for a local supermarket chain last week.

The £40,000 contract will include hard and soft landscaping for the garden.

Barton Grange Landscapes has also tackled a £40,000 deer fencing job and is currently undertaking a £25,000 lake refurbishment. Topping's firm recently completed a £45,000 woodland trail with exercise equipment for Lancaster University.

"This is a very welcome busy period for the company following a quieter summer period. It's just down to a bit of good fortune," he said. The firm carries out projects worth £500 to £750,000 in parks and for offices, factories, schools and leisure centres.

The firm's clients also include Lancashire County Council, Liverpool City Council and the Government's Homes & Communities Agency as well as its range of private-sector customers.
