Case Studies

Wildlife garden in Leeds

Background
A large area of waste ground in Rothwell Primary School in Leeds was transformed into a wildlife garden by Pinnacle PSG’s Facilities Management team, based in Leeds.

The school was keen to see the area turned into a garden, but had little budget and even less experience of landscape gardening to see the project through, so Pinnacle PSG stepped in.

The project
Pinnacle PSG’s facilities management team manage 10 Primary Schools in Leeds, providing buildings maintenance, ground maintenance, cleaning and catering services. Over the summer months, with help from a local volunteer conservation group, BTCV, Pinnacle PSG designed, constructed and planted a garden fit for all the local wildlife.

Outcomes
The project was completed on time and on budget and head teacher, Janet Booth, was delighted with the finished result. “The whole area has been transformed from an unused and uninspiring area of grass into a garden that all pupils will take great pride in developing”, said Janet.
 
Pinnacle PSG grounds maintenance staff have also volunteered to work with the school and its gardening clubs to advise and assist with the planting.
