Normally the council will plant wild flowers, but in order to bring it up to a more sustainable bed we will plan over the next few weeks to cover the area with weed suppressant and lay Cotswold stone on top and planting a mixture of 3 colour lavender plants and 3 different colour of ornamental grasses.
The council will leave the outside edge green grass as this is often damaged by vehicles and easy to repair a mix of taller ornamental grasses will be around the base of the post, we will also plant pockets of wild flowers to add to the overall colour.
