In 2010 Paul was asked by Harrogate Borough Council & Harrogate in Bloom to create a series of planting schemes in the town to attract pollinating insects and enrich the biodiversity.
Paul created a planting scheme for Montpellier Hill, near the world famous Betty's Tearoom, specifically targeting winged insects, which in turn would attract small birds and create a new habitat cycle in a previously fairly barren area. This space was designed as the 'In Flight' Garden and used many native and simple structured flowers and shrubs.
In the Valley Gardens Paul created a planting scheme which would have seasonal interest for visitors and be a haven for pollinating insects. This scheme is largely herbaceous and also demonstrated that civic planting can represent good value in terms of up keep costs.
With year round flower and structure the scheme also had a series of wooden Habitat Towers which have since been replicated across Harrogate.
