With summer well and truly on the way, we thought it was the perfect time to share our plans for promoting biodiversity and protecting the natural landscape.
This summer we will be introducing uncut meadow areas in some of our larger green spaces on our estates – these areas will not be cut until October. We will also not be strimming around trees to help protect the trees from strimmer damage and help promote biodiversity around the base of the tree.
There are lots of great benefits to leaving uncut areas, these include:
The meadow areas will be at these locations:
Harebreaks - The Harebreaks & Dells Side
Hillside - School Mead, High Acres & Upper Highway
Holywell - Croxley View (near playground) & Caractacus Green
Leavesden - Leggatts Rise
Meriden - The Gossamers (Garston end of the Meriden)
Sherwoods - Hill Farm Close
Woodside - Albans View / Valley Rise, Cobb Green& Weall Green
We are also proud to have submitted one of our trees to The Queen’s Green Canopy project in celebration of Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee. Our cherry tree planted in the Meriden is part of a unique tree planting initiative inviting people across the UK to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee”
Anyone is invited to take part and plant sustainably – see how you can get involved here.
