About the Garden - Small Feature Garden

Imagine a future city where you wake up to a chorus of bird song rather than traffic and as you walk down the street the breeze rustles through the branches of the city forest. The roadside where the neighbours once parked cars is now a green sanctuary – a place to rest, where children can play safely on their walk to and from school. As we move towards a Net Zero future, wondrous opportunities emerge to rethink our city spaces.  

This parklet showcases how we can create, manage, and grow green spaces in our towns and cities. It is a space for biodiversity with a safe, accessible and inclusive design and layout that serves to connect the community with horticulture. Green landscaping is hugely beneficial in urban areas as it helps to cool the cities, filter pollution, and provide drainage. This garden is designed for everyone living in urban communities.
