The scheme includes rainwater harvesting, a communal shelter, large storage units, composting facilities and a range of growing spaces. A small lawn and picnic area enables play and informal use. Habitat value was significantly improved through the inclusion of a large area of new meadow planting.
New developments built around the gardens create the feeling of a city oasis. The garden is intensely used by individuals, groups and businesses in the Merchant City.
Client: Glasgow City Council and Merchant City Community Council
