Gardens and ‘green spaces’ – no matter how small – play a vital role in our daily lives: from cleaning the air (by absorbing heavy pollutants and providing a home for various forms of wildlife) to simply bringing us in touch with the seasons of the natural world, green spaces are perhaps amongst the most cherished features of the city.
Chestertons and internationally acclaimed landscape designer Paul Hervey-Brooks have worked together on a booklet that showcases easy ways to improve the quality of private green spaces in London.
“From front gardens and courtyards to container gardens, lower ground-floor spaces, balconies and sun traps – I have developed a series of helpful design tips and combinations of plants which will help you make the most of your green spaces through flower, foliage, fruit and bark.
If you are new to gardening I have included advice on soils and soil improvements to get you off to the best start. If you don’t have a garden but love plants, we have also looked at the best plants for improving air quality in the home and, which indoor plants are best suited to which environments.” – Paul Hervey-Brooks
