Case study – Stanton Cross, Wellingborough.

1 min read

As part of the Stanton Cross development in Wellingborough, VMS are introducing sedum ground cover on roundabouts and bus shelters.

Geographically, Stanton Cross is located on the eastern edge of historic Wellingborough. So, it represents an exciting extension to the town, but with an identity and character all its own.

One of the most ambitious projects in the town for generations, it is a flagship mixed-use development which will see more than £1 billion invested in Wellingborough.

Furthermore, with a choice of quality, modern homes, 143 acres of lush green space and landscaped parkland, plans for retail and leisure facilities, as well as new primary and secondary schools, Stanton Cross offers a combination of community and convenience.

VMS has the contract to develop sedum roundabouts and to maintain the site. They provide professional landscape services using qualified professionals.

Initially, the first roundabout to benefit from the sedum is located on Roundhouse Way. The process is a relatively simple one. Firstly, the grass was sprayed off to kill most of the growth. Then the site was thoroughly wetted down to reduce dust and to help break up the surface before rotavating and then after rotavating, new topsoil was laid. Finally, the Enviromat Sedum Matting was  laid out and pegged down. It was then watered and fed.
