Plant up bedding in trees bases on the Grosvenor Estate SE5.

Southwark Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

The Grosvenor Estate in SE5 (Grosvenor Terrace, Grosvenor Park and Urlwin Street) have stunning London Planes growing on all three streets. We are looking at building wooden surrounds for each tree base using recycled wood. We'll build each of these up with soil and mulch to maintain moisture (tree bases can be very dry). Once completed, well add Spring/summer bulbs, perennials and Spring/summer bedding to add interest throughout the year. Each tree base will be adopted by a resident near the tree to maintain, plant and water. We'll also have a yearly competition for the most loved tree base.

What we'll deliver:

  • Build wooden surrounds for each tree on our estate.
  • Add soil, mulch and plants to each tree base.
  • Maintain the tree bases for many years to come.

Why it's a great idea:

Community gardening is a great way to meet neighbours and helps maintain a community spirit. This project will get many residents involved and is of course a great form of exercise.

Steps to get it done:

  • A few trees bases have been planted up and have been a great success.

May need assistance with basic carpentry skills.
