Biodiversity is defined as the variation of life forms within a given ecosystem. The Bradstone Biodiversity Garden prompts us to think of our green spaces not only as places to relax and enjoy, but also as multilayered habitats. By combining sustainable practice with planting and features to increase biodiversity, the garden offers a species-rich habitat for a range of at-risk garden insects and mammals.

Some of Bradstone’s most environmentally aware products have been combined to create structures that are not only beautiful but also actively enhance biodiversity.

Expert commentary by Chris Young & Phil Clayton, The Garden magazine

This is a good example of packing in the planting to make the garden look much bigger. Going down into the ground gives a sense of space and depth to what is a really small urban garden. Delightful planting here – particularly the irises mixed with purple alliums. Spot the beautiful yellow aquilegias mixed with tellima and a convincingly rambling rose through the hedge.
