PlantLock accommodates most bicycle types on the market. Bicycle frame and both wheels can be secured to the bar with the owner’s existing locks – ideally two quality locks of different types, as recommended by SoldSecure. PlantLock requires minimum maintenance, being made from robust, durable materials. The locking bar is made from boron steel, case-hardened and tempered, to achieve robustness beyond most commercially available bicycle locks.

PlantLock planting: PlantLock is suitable for growing a wide range of flowering plants, hardy shrubs, fragrant herbs, and alternatively, low maintenance, drought tolerant planting.

The Black Lark is twinned with PlantLock.
The first sighting of the Black Lark, photographed two thousand miles from its home of the Russian Steppes, in Holyhead, North Wales 2003, established it as one of the newest residents in the uk.
Like the Front Yard Company's products for re-invigorating frontyards, the Black Lark is a new arrival to this country.
Changes in how we get around our cities, how deliveries are made to us, how our refuse and recycling is collected, all mean changes to our homes and outdoor spaces.
The Front Yard Company seeks to create an environment that is enjoyable, accommodates change, while always benefitting wildlife.
