Pledges will only be charged if the project hits its funding goal of £641 by 31 Aug 2017

Currently the alleyways are covered in tall weeds which are unattractive and it also means the alleyways cannot be used. We want to clear the weeds and then sow some ground cover requiring little maintenance so that the area can be used for access and recreation by children and residents. This will create a safe and secure area which will be pleasant. We have already started and had a day weeding and now most of the rubbish dumped has gone.

What we'll deliver:

  • Weed killer spraying - done professionally
  • Wait 2-3 months for weeds to die
  • Dig up paths and aerate 6 hours £90 for the gardner + residents to help
  • Lay flagstones
  • Sow Dichondra seeds
  • Sow also Irish moss seeds

Why it's a great idea:

Everyone will benefit. Easy access to back gates. Less weeding in the gardens from weed seeds blowing into the gardens. A safe place for children to play. Transforming the alleyways into a pleasant area

Steps to get it done:

  • weed killer spraying
  • wait 2 months
  • dig up paths
  • lay flagstones
  • sow ground cover seeds
