Details

Find out how we use rainwater from our roofs to make mini wetlands that are good for wildlife and a lovely place for people to visit.

Join our warden on this urban wetlands walk as he shows you the series of ponds and planters in our courtyard. Discover how this feature helps store rainwater so that it slowly percolates through the soil instead of flooding out onto our hard surfaces or rushing down drains.

Then walk through our gardens and get inspiration about how you can create a small wetland of your own. From DIY bug hotels, to planting wildlife friendly plants you’re sure to go home with some fun and inspiring new ideas.
