In partnership with GiGL, we conducted a pioneering study, London: Garden City?, which revealed that London’s gardens - which make up nearly a quarter of Greater London - are changing from green to grey.
Garden greenspace in the capital’s gardens has been lost at a rate of two and a half Hyde Parks per year driven by recent trends in garden design.
Hard surfacing - including decking and paving – increased by over 25 per cent in the 100 month study period.
The report highlights that the impacts of garden design and management on the environmental role of gardens is an issue that needs to be addressed.
