Van den Berk nurseries and Niek Roozen bv are invited to advise the Huangfa and the Dadongliu nurseries so that the quality of the trees to be grown will meet European standards. Furthermore, we developed a concept plan for setup of the Huangfa nursery is made. The Huangfa nursery will play an important role in demonstrations of new technics, product exhibitions and publicity.
The Huangfa nursery has a surface of circa 150 ha. A part will be setup with a park area. In this area special themes with specific functions will be developed in the frame of a colourful and wintergreen Beijing. The nursery will be used for the exhibition of the introduced tree species, but is on top of that open for educational institutions and interested visitors.
The existing tree nursery has a rigid and strong tree structure and several sub sections with specific functions. This is the ideal basis for multiple theme gardens with enough space for a large assortment of trees and plants. The design, that consists of two concepts, portrays a clear main structure for the nursery with newly added functions in the sub areas. Such sub sections will be set up as park area with themes like the Green City, Sponge City and Colourful Beijing. Here various product groups of the nursery will be used.
By expanding the tree assortment at the nursery with trees with autumn colouring leafs, wintergreen trees or spring flowering trees, the project meets the request of increasing colour in the city of Beijing.
The second goal is to improve the nursery’s special structure and infrastructure. A main route will create a comprehensible routing and organisation of the nursery and will take the visitor past all the highlights.
The addition along clear axes of theme gardens, terraces, vertical gardens will turn the nursery into a window showcasing colourful gardening examples which will form a source of inspiration for parks, streets, office gardens and private gardens.
