gardening mudThe time has come to get down and dirty in the mud, introducing our brand new communal courtyard garden! Get your gloves and shovels at the ready as we bring you that fresh spring feeling, in September! The gorgeous variety of sweet smelling flowers with the back drop of the European Green Capital will keep our Smarts Quarter residents feeling fresh and fruity all year round.

For those of you who don’t know, Bristol is very proud to be the UK’s first cycling city and the ‘Green Capital’ for 2015! With a growing status as the most bike-friendly destination, we feel that our eco-friendly garden will blend in incredibly well. This Green City is plastered with bike routes, open spaces and eco-friendly campaigns – we are sure our home owners will have plenty to do on top of enjoying our specially designed eco garden!

The garden is set to be situated centrally in the grounds of Smarts Quarter so all of our residents will have access to it. It is strategically structured so the landscape will attract beautiful bugs, bees and butterflies as well as being visually pleasing to everyone in Smarts Quarter.

Feeling inspired by what will soon be a beautiful natural space for the Smarts Quarter residents to enjoy, we wanted to share with you our plans for the garden as well as see if we can inspire you to make an eco-friendly garden of your own.
