New Pocket Garden in Vauxhall

News June 2, 2020 - admin2020 New Pocket Garden in Vauxhall
Vauxhall One has transformed a site between Wandsworth Road and Bondway into a new pocket garden.

Working in partnership with TfL who own the site, Vauxhall One has completed its most recent soft landscaping project, planting a mixture of shrubs and perennials to create an oasis of green space in the middle of Vauxhall. The space now boasts 300 plants, with an additional 200 geraniums grown locally by the Vauxhall One team.

As well as giving a splash of colour and vibrancy, the plants have been carefully selected by designer Vedrana Komljenovic to enhance local bio-diversity.  The garden includes RHS certified year-round pollinators such as berberis thunbergii, chaenomeles and echinacea, with many of the plants flowering later this summer.

This new pocket garden is part of the BID’s greening strategy, aiming to help improve air quality, enhance local biodiversity, and make the area more vibrant. Part of the decision to transform this site was based on feedback from our ‘Have Your Say on Vauxhall’ survey, with many respondents requesting more greening attention along Wandsworth Road, and main roads in Vauxhall.

If you would like to bring any areas in central Vauxhall to our attention that would benefit from a greening project, get in touch.
