Brett Landscaping makes a splash saving outdoor pool

Brett Landscaping has donated 50sqm of paving products for the refurbishment of Portishead’s open air swimming pool. The pool, which faced closure and demolition, won the chance to receive an extreme makeover for a reality TV show, Ty’s Great British Adventure, hosted by US star Ty Pennington. The donation is one of the first such donations of material under Brett Landscaping’s ‘Love Your Landscape’ initiative.

Brett Landscaping’s paving products were used around the swimming pool and also at the front entrance of the building. Built in 1962, Portishead’s open air pool has become a landmark in the community, which explains why hundreds of volunteers helped out with the makeover.

Speaking about the donation, Roger Whitfield, Pool Trustee said; “The support we have received for this project has been fantastic. Thanks to companies such as Brett Landscaping we have been able to complete a stunning transformation that will bring a great deal of pleasure to the people of Portishead both now and in the future.”

The Love Your Landscape initiative aims to help projects with a strong community feel and which promote the benefits of being outside and enjoying the environment. It also aims to create inspirational landscapes which are accessible for everyone.

Jane Campion, spokesperson for the Love Your Landscape initiative comments; “Being able to donate materials free of charge to such a worthy community project is what Love Your Landscape is all about. The pool is at the heart of the community and being able to ensure its future survival as a place for children and families to get outside and enjoy their environment, makes this project a worthy cause for free materials.”

In the opening weekend the newly transformed ‘Mediterranean-style oasis’ attracted over 1450 excited swimmers.
