Great Estates – New Planting outside tower blocks

The Great Estates project to install new planting outside the tower blocks has now been completed, and handed over to our residents to look after. The planting has turned out to be smaller than the visualisations that were shared with us to indicate what the finished scheme would look like (above) so it has been agreed that we will review the progress as the plants develop over the summer, and review the situation in mid-September. We have been assured that some adjustments can be made to the planting if we are still disappointed with the progress.

We have agreed that our residents will assist in keeping the plants watered every week over the growing period, giving the beds water for two hours per week. This will hopefully help the planting survive and mature over the summer. Below I have created some galleries to record the planting scheme that was put in place outside each block.
