As part of Groundwork’s Active Neighbourhoods project in Birmingham, local residents wanted to make their area in Alum Rock more useful and attractive in the form of a garden.

The existing site was a simple green triangle between the junctions of several roads. After an initial site visit, Groundwork’s Landscape Designer produced a design proposal. The scheme has now been implemented, with the main works such as the footpaths and installation of wildflower turf by contractors and with the planting of woodland species by local resident volunteers and Groundwork Staff.
