Wendell Park Gardening Friends was established with the help of Spacehive three years ago. Since then it's volunteers transformed the herbaceous border alongside Wendell Road, removing snowberry bushes which had become overgrown and In their place the planting hundreds of shrubs and flowering plants and over 1,000 spring bulbs. This year the park has seen a large increase in users, in part as a consequence of the lockdown which also saw playgrounds being closed to children. Sadly, many of the new plants, shrubs and flowers planted by the Gardening Friends have been damaged or destroyed as a result of children and dogs being able to run freely through the flower beds . We are now looking to install low metal railings to protect to the borders, allowing new plants to establish so that we can continue too make the park more beautiful. These railings will also prevent dogs and footballs from damaging the habitats that have been created for insects and invertebrates.

What we'll deliver:

  • Install 50m of low bow-topped railings
  • Improve the soil with 2 tonnes of rotted horse manure
  • Remove and replace plants and shrubs lost to damage

Why it's a great idea:

This project will; - Embellish and improve the existing park infrastructure - Protect the herbaceous borders allowing new planting to establish and thrive - Protect the environments that have been created for insects and invertebrates - Reduce the amount of litter in the borders

Steps to get it done:

  • Secure funding for the railings
  • Installation of the railings
  • Procurement of plants to replenish lost stock
  • Replanting the border
