Project Details


Enhancement of Teeside Park


Stockton-on-Tees, England


July 2019

About The Project

One of the UK’s busiest retail sites, Teesside Park in Stockton-on-Tees, underwent its biggest overhaul for 30 years. Owner, leading UK property company British Land has undertaken a £30m programme of enhancements, of which £1.6m has been allocated to new landscaping. The majority of the landscaping centres around the new car parking layout, which has been totally re-designed to improve accessibility, traffic flow and reduce ‘conflict’. It is being carried out by Gavin Jones Limited who provide professional landscape management services across the UK. Two key pedestrian routes have been added as well as an open-air courtyard, featuring seating and Corten-style planters.

What we did

Landscape architects, MacGregor Smith, specified a detailed planting scheme, and Green-tech was asked to facilitate the organisation and production of a bespoke topsoil mix to satisfy their demands. The soil was mixed and supplied from one of Green-tree’s soil manufacturing sites in Yorkshire, just three miles away from the final site. All deliveries were timed to hit pre-9am timed deliveries; the smaller batches ensuring that all soil was fresh and easy to handle.

Green-tech was also requested to advise and supply in the region of 1,500 tonnes of Green-tree soil, including Amenity Tree Soil, sand and pea gravel for the tree pits: along with Green-tree subsoil and topsoil for the ornamental herbaceous planters.

In addition, the team advised on, and sourced, irrigation systems and tree anchors to ensure all the trees and shrubs have the best possible chance of establishment and success in their new environment.

“On a project of this scale, logistics and delivery deadlines are critical. Working with Green-tech on previous projects, we were confident that everything would run to plan, and they didn’t let us down. Everything was supplied when and where it was needed, with the minimum of fuss.”
