As an architect, I found the technical guide really useful as a reference for early design stages, to ensure we would be allowing sufficient depth for appropriate planting. I also appreciated the advice on the success of each type of infrastructure and the level of detail provided will allow us to have more informed conversations with our landscape architects or planting specialists about achieving biodiversity on our projects.

I will be sharing both guides internally, and pointing design teams to them in the future.
