Landscape contractor Ashlea ordered the Rainbow Defender shelters from the supplier, which branched into landscaping from its core business of grass seed and fertiliser late last year.
Work involves building embankments and tree planting along a stretch of the M9 in Edinburgh, Scotland. The project near junction 1A will cost around £50m to widen the motorway and improve slip roads. It is due to end this December.
Rigby Taylor, main sponsor of the 2012 BALI Awards, wanted to move into supply of landscape products such as ground cover and tree protection to offer a more rounded and service for landscapers, said landscape director Mark Whiting. "The company has always had recognition and a strong customer base in non-product areas," he added. "But there was potential in ground protection, ground cover and tree products. We can now offer pretty much everything for most landscape situations."
