Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust Specify Leca® Flower in 50L Bags
Leca Flower was recently specified by the Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust for a raingarden for the Tuffley Court Community Association (TCCA). The material was specified to fit around a land grain pipe to facilitate a new garden feature for the community. This was supplied in 50L lightweight bags which weigh only 15kg per bag – allowing for easy installation.
Heather Moore from the Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust said “We decided to use Leca Flower predominantly due to the lightweight nature of the material. We use it as a substrate to surround a land-drain pipe, and normally use stones which are incredibly heavy, and also tend to come unwashed which then puts pollutants into the water we have just filtered by the plants and soil. Therefore, Leca LWA’s way easier to use, and doesn’t add sediment to water which would run off into the waterways and cause problems for wildlife.”

Overview of Project
Leca Flower is an organic product which is re-usable and contains no herbicides - offering a long lasting and green substitute for soil. This is suitable for large or small and compact gardens and is highly suitable for use in-doors. Through effective water retention and lightweight properties, Leca® Flower provides a perfect solution for effective plant growth.
Heather Moore from the Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust continues, “We were most satisfied with the ease of the product due to its lightweight nature, and huge capacity to store water.”
The Saint-Gobain group has set itself the goal of being carbon neutral by 2050, but Leca, a member of the group has decided to reach the goal by 2035 and this was reflected in the decision of the Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust to specify Leca Flower for this project “Leca Flower is Environmentally sound, natural, high water-holding capacity, and lightweight.”
The project was deemed a success and will form part of the area for the years to come, “We would love to use Leca Flower again. The company were brilliant to work with, delivered on time and the product was perfect for what we required. Thank you Leca we can’t wait to order more!”
