Boningale has teamed up with environmental experts to produce a unique catalogue for architects and contractors keen to maximise their ecological credentials when working on BREEAM and ecologically sensitive projects.
The “Plants for Wildlife” catalogue was designed to assist contractors working on ecological landscape projects to accommodate changes more efficiently. Download Now
Working with global experts WYG Environment, we devised the 20-page catalogue, which sets out hundreds of approved plant species and varieties that encourage ecological diversity and attract myriad wildlife to new-build sites and green urban spaces, including green roofs.
It not only draws on evidence gathered in Sheffield University’s Biodiversity in Gardens (BUGS) study and the Database of Insects and their Food Plans (DBIF) research by the Biological Records Centre, but also highlights if the plants are recommended by authoritative sources Natural England and the RSPB.
The comprehensive catalogue lists the native and common name of each plant and which birds, animals or insects are likely to benefit from the planting of each species, as well as Boningale GreenSky range of unique SkyPlugs – our sister department that specialises in plants and substrates for green roofs.
