Austen Associates were commissioned by Lidl GmBH to create a planting design for their new-look store in Wicklow.
The planting design needed to provide impact all year round at this high profile store creating a pleasant shopping environment for customers. An overhaul of the client’s existing plant specification was required to achieve this.
The design included the selection of specimen trees for planting areas and which were to be planted in tree pits in hard landscape islands in and adjacent to the car park. Ground cover planting arrangements including robust but colourful shrubs and perennials were designed for perimeter car park areas.
