Dear Rod, Now that the garden at Whiteley is complete I would like to take a moment to share with you all at Greenspan exactly what the experience has meant to me and my team at Kiddi Caru Whiteley. The prospect of receiving a budget to work on the nursery garden began with such excitement however this quickly turned to frustration as I met with company after company who failed to see what I was trying to create. That was until you came to see me. Wishing to create a truly bespoke outdoor environment that would cater for all children three months to five years I wanted something very different to what I was seeing in the playground equipment catalogues I was being shown. From our first meeting when I began talking of zoning off areas, creating hidden woodland environments, opportunity for mark making, transporting, cause and effect, gradient and levels of play I felt listened to for the first time. Rather than being put off by the challenge you appeared inspired and as excited by it as I was. During the design phase of the project you worked with me to create something which on paper looked very special, especially as the A1 2D and later 3D drawings arrived. These enabled me to create a wonderful display which got the parents, children and staff really involved. As the project team arrived on site and the work began I was equally impressed by everyone involved in the project. I was consulted on every area of the work to ensure what I got was exactly what I had in mind with the team working with me to create the intricate details that make the garden so special. The team were always happy to stop and talk to inquisitive children, explaining what they were doing; I was even asked if they could be named our Employee of the Month! The work and the materials used have been of an extremely high quality, even when sourcing them involved foreign travel! I would have no hesitation encouraging anyone looking to create something special to use Greenspan. In fact having done just that within my own organisation I have since had the opportunity to work with you on a number of other nursery gardens and have seen first hand your commitment and enthusiasm to a multisite project. Thank you Rod to you and your team; we are thrilled with the space you have helped to create and have enjoyed every element of the experience – I only wish I had another project to work with you on!
