Frosts Landscape Construction - Commercial landscaping specialists

Fortnum and Mason

London, Picadilly

Frosts have been associated with Fortnum & Mason since 2005.

Frosts worked with Fortnum & Mason’s own Display Managers to design a bespoke external Christmas tree display that was in keeping with Fortnum & Mason’s image and which did not create a risk to the public or the installation team.

A display of 14 real trees decorated with lights were installed along the balcony of the Fortnum & Mason shop front and additional trees on the high level railings.

The retail industry start to think about Christmas early and need their real decorated Christmas trees installed for the first Sunday in November, we take special measures to make sure the trees are selected for their longevity.  Special care is also taken when hand picking the trees to ensure they are all of a uniform size and shape, with the added precaution of extra trees being available if required.

Frosts Christmas tree services are very proud of our Health & Safety record. We only use staff that are fully trained and certified in the use of the equipment required for the job. In this case the team will hold current IPAS & PASMA certificates.

Platform towers are used to install the trees on the high level railing, while staff installing the 14 trees on the canopy are safely harnessed to a guide line running along it.  The trees are placed in specially constructed box stands which support the trees and hold the ballast.

At Frosts we understand that it is the attention to the smallest of details that sets us apart from the competition, so the stands are painted using the same colour paint as the Fortnum & Mason shop front.

An early setup (06:00) and completion times are vital to minimise the impact on the pedestrian traffic.  Of course, once the installation is complete and before they return to the depot, several of the installation team take the opportunity to do a spot of special Christmas shopping for their lucky wives!
