Housing developer Mulberry Homes – which is celebrating its 10th anniversary of providing new homes developments, including a site in Leicestershire – is working to improve biodiversity and ecology by planting trees and shrubs.
As part of the housebuilder’s The Mulberry Way initiative and commitment to the areas in which it builds, Mulberry Homes has helped to plant more than 3,650 trees and shrubs across sites in Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire, Warwickshire, Oxfordshire and Leicestershire since April 2021.
Mulberry Homes plants an average of 12 trees and shrubs per new home delivered, as part of its pledge to create greener spaces with great living appeal for local people.
At select housing developments, Mulberry Homes is creating organic gardening clubs and is donating tools, planting spaces, a shed, water sources and decking areas to local residents.
For National Tree Planting Week – which takes place between Saturday, November 27 and Sunday, December 5 – the housebuilder is encouraging green-thumbed locals to get involved with planting at home.
Kerry Jones, Sales and Marketing Director for Mulberry Homes, said: “We are really proud of our commitment to preserving the environments surrounding our developments, and our drive towards our sustainability goals.
“At Mulberry Homes, it is one of our key ambitions to enhance ecology in any way that we can, and with thanks to our The Mulberry Way initiative, we’re delighted to be continuing our hard work to improve ecology across our sites.”
In Leicestershire, Mulberry Homes is delivering a collection of two-, three-, and four-bedroom properties at Kingsbury Park, off Coventry Road in Lutterworth.
