The town centre of Goirle, Brabant, has always had a green character. During a renovation of the centre, which included the construction of an underground parking garage, a lot of trees had to be cut down. The municipality set a condition that new trees had to be added, but planting them in open ground proved impossible due to the parking garage. Following consultation with the project developer and KuiperCompagnons from Rotterdam, the decision was taken to use trees planted in containers. The municipality reserved budget for this solution and KuiperCompagnons built their wishes into the design. 3.5 by 2 metre steel flowerpots were chosen in a classic red, fitting with the village-like character of Goirle. Various species of (multistem) trees were planted in the containers, including trident maples, Japanese walnut trees and Chinese Golden Rain Trees.
