The company has implemented a range of re-cycling and irrigation initiatives over the last two years to increase its water catchment provision, having projected that the site would require 110,000m3 of water each year at the end of its five-year expansion plan.
The nursery’s water had come from the local stream, which has yearly abstraction rates of 53,000m3.
PipeKit supplied irrigation pipework for the new French Drain System constructed under the rose beds, which takes the water to catchment silos and reservoir. It also installed piping to address the risks of flooding on the site, as experienced earlier in 2012.
Nursery manager Chris Lowe said: "We have been delighted at how quickly we are seeing the results from our labour. It has been a very intensive project with many parts and all of which were essential to take us forward. As a whole, the new infrastructure in place will be responsible for growing our business, at the same time as conserving and preserving the natural resources of the local area".
