Smart Thinking from Lime OrchardSeptember 2010
Nottinghamshire residents will soon be seeing a lot more of Lime Orchard, the Fiskerton based award winning garden design and build company. Always keen to demonstrate a refreshing new approach to business, the company has invested in a customised Smart car sporting the funky bright Lime Orchard logo and will be operated from Headoffice, near Southwell, Notts.. The car, which was unveiled at the Flintham & District Ploughing Match – Agricultural & Horticultural Show (pictured below) and later at the Southwell Ploughing Match & Show this week, demonstrates an innovative and highly memorable approach to ambient advertising.
As is befitting of a company that works every day with the natural environment, the Smart has impeccable green credentials. Fitted with 'micro hybrid drive' technology, it is capable of achieving in excess of 60mpg and contributes less than 100g/km of CO2..
In addition to showcasing the new Smart car, Lime Orchard, was also exhibiting at both shows with its small but perfectly formed BBC Gardeners’ World Live Show show garden (which was awarded an RHS Commendation - the highest accolade achievable in its category). The compact but über chic space combines dramatic planting with cool sleek grey slate tiles and incorporated an innovative outdoor work space complete with a neat under storage solution.
Property owners in the region should keep their eyes peeled for the Lime Orchard Smart car on the road – a Chelsea Flower Show standard of garden design could be about to arrive in your street!
