Johnsons win contract to Revive the Royal Edinburgh Hospital

We’ve secured a contract worth £122,000 to supply the Royal Edinburgh Hospital in Scotland.

The new planting scheme is part of a £48m revamp of the hospital, which cares for patients with mental health problems, after a new state-of-the-art facility was granted the go-ahead in 2014.

External work has so far included the removal of shrubbery, trees and other debris, the demolition of the Scottish Ambulance Service building, as well as the development of a therapeutic garden activity area.

A large landscape contractor selected Johnsons of Whixley to supply two phases of the project.

The initial phase, which we secured in November 2015, involved planting for the internal courtyards and the second phase, won in August 2016, was to supply the external planting areas, which is due for completion in April 2017.

In total, 280 specimen trees up to 25-30cm girth and 45,000 container shrubs are being delivered to the scheme, with over 70 different species.
