Coventry City Council
Cambridge Direct Tree Seeding
CDTS was recommended to Coventry City Council as a company to undertake annual flower seeding to various areas.
CDTS subsequently provided a comprehensive programme from herbicide application, cultivation and hydroseeding to 20 different sites throughout the city, equating to approximately 22,000m2. The sites ranged from roundabouts and central reservations, to open spaces and parkland.
CDTS specified an annual wildflower mix which would provide rapid colour and prolonged flowering throughout the year.
While the initial dry Spring slowed germination down, a vivid flowering meadow was admired from June to November by many thousands of people, with a great deal of positive feedback.
