Wetlands, woodland and nature reserves are not the sort of things you normally associate with steel-making and heavy engineering.

However, a number of firms have turned to Wildscapes to develop eco-friendly features that both protect and enhance the environment around their plants.

While wetlands can prevent low lying sites from flooding, wooded areas can improve air quality, act as a sound baffle and absorb dust.

Add to that the fact that they put an attractive green tinge on what have in the past been considered to be smokestack industries, create a pleasant place for staff to enjoy a break and their sandwiches and produce a distinct “wow” factor when clients visit. You can begin to see why more firms have been investing in their environment.
