 WILDLIFE HABITAT

ITS A BUG'S LIFE for Britain's largest native beetle, the stag beetle. These magnificent flying creatures appear in the summer months as they seek out a mate. Males are easy to spot, with a set of impressive antlers. Despite these fearsome characteristics, stag beetles are harmless and play a crucial role in our gardens, returning important minerals back into the soil. Dead wood is the stag beetle's preferred choice of habitat, so why not welcome this wonderful protected species into your garden with a designer log hotel!

 RAINWATER HARVESTING

WATER, WATER EVERYWHERE! With the recent drought and hosepipe ban (closely followed by torrential rain!), it's no wonder that here at JPGD, we ensure all our designs incorporate some form of rainwater harvesting system. From simple water butts to bespoke decorative containers, there's always a way to recycle your rainwater and do your bit for the environment. But it doesn't stop with rainwater - grey water recycling is another way of reusing your household water to make sure your garden stays looking fabulous all year long.

 SUSTAINABLE DESIGN

ECOBUILD: This month, our Environmental Officer visited EcoBuild at London's ExCeL Exhibition Centre. The world's biggest event for sustainable design, construction and the built environment, this was JPS's second annual visit and once again the scale, quality and innovation of products on show was inspiring. From composite decking solutions to solar powered greenhouses, the message is clear: eco design is here to stay and JPS will forge ahead using creativity and innovatiion to find sustainable solutions in our gardens.

 ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

GOING POTTY: Hats off to Bournemouth Parks Department, who - along with our talented and tenacious Environmental Officer, Mazen Beidas - has been instrumental in helping us solve a nagging environmental head-scratcher: what to do with plastic gardening pots. As you can imagine, we generate thousands of gardening pots a year - that's a lot of plastic going to landfill. As part of our committment to finding better environmental practices, the pots will now be sterilised and recycled by Bournemouth Parks Department.

  • Protect the health and safety of our employees, others and surrounding communities and ecosystems.

  • Continually improve the environmental performance of our products and processes and natural resources, including raw materials, energy and water, as efficiently as possible.
  • Seek to reuse and recycle materials and waste products where ever possible.
  • Require environmental, health and safety awareness training of all our employees and more specific training where appropriate.
  • Evaluate products and processes at all stages of our product’s life, from the point of view of chemical risk to our employees or customers, dedicating ourselves to finding better alternatives based on reducing health, safety or environmental risks.

  • Make every effort to ensure that excellent environmental, health and safety performance is an integral part of Janine Pattison Garden Design Ltd’s performance and of the performance of all of our employees.To this end, we will measure and periodically report on our progress in realising these commitments.
