Bulbs in public green spaces
We have seen a growing interest over the years in the use of flower bulbs in public green spaces. Flower bulbs bring us the first colours after winter and provide that spring feeling so many people long for after the cold, dark months. In fact, no other type of planting gives splendour to beds, parks, verges and lawns in spring with such a diverse array of colours and shapes. In addition to bringing colour, variety and cheerfulness, flower bulbs also play an increasingly important role in encouraging biodiversity. By using the right species, they can provide food for butterflies and bees. The flowering period of bulbs can play a crucial role here, given there are hardly any other crops that are a source of food for these insects that early in the year.
Our aim at CSW Landscaping is to respond in various ways to the growing demand for flower bulbs for use in public green spaces. This starts with the composition of our range. While we have a wide selection of tulips and daffodils, CSW Landscaping also spends a lot of time and care selecting our range of special bulb and tuber flowers. Many species in this group are highly suitable for use in public green spaces because of their ability to flower for several years in a row and the possibility to plant them mechanically.
Our product range includes individual species for use in public green spaces as well as various mixes. These mixes can be composed of species that bloom almost simultaneously to create a spectacular display or can also be used to lengthen the flowering period. A carefully selected mix makes it possible to achieve a flowering period of between eight and 10 weeks.
To support our customers in implementing their planting plan, CSW Landscaping offers the possibility of having the bulbs planted mechanically (under grass) and can offer advice about our product range. CSW Landscaping has its own planting machines and, just as important, people with the right expertise to make every planting plan a success. Contact one of our employees, free of obligation, for advice about the best plan for you.
