NEW COURTYARD GARDEN AT PRINCESS ROYAL IS JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED!

A garden for cancer patients, visitors and staff officially opened at the Princess Royal Hospital in Telford today – thanks to Boningale Garden Creations, Boningale Nurseries & Boningale Greensky.

The multi-award winning domestic landscape company from Albrighton donated materials and its design expertise to help create the new courtyard named ‘The Boningale Tranquillity Garden’.

Work began on the garden in January and after weeks of excavating, landscaping and planting – helped by volunteers from the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS – the garden was officially unveiled on the 24th March to coincide with NHS Sustainability Day.

Steve Tonks, General Manager at Boningale Garden Creations, designed the landscape and planting scheme, and all the shrubs were donated by Boningale Nurseries. The scheme also features a new, highly aesthetic environmental planting technique that is being exclusively developed by Boningale Greensky.

It is the second year in a row that Boningale has been involved with NHS Sustainability Day. Last year, it donated two trees for the hospital grounds.

Steve said: “We are thrilled to support the Princess Royal Hospital once again and hope that the garden we have created provides a therapeutic and calming outdoor environment for patients, their families and staff.”

As well as donating the paving for hard landscape areas, Boningale Garden Creations also helped The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust convince some of its industry contacts to donate other materials, including pergolas, which are being built by Border Hardwood.

“The support for the garden has been tremendous and we are humbled to have so many people donate their time and goods to make it happen,” added Steve.
