    Johnsons of Whixley were selected by The Landscape Group id verde to supply Gwendwr Gardens in West Kensington.

    Gwendwr Gardens is a public garden that was built in memory of those killed in the Blitz.

    We secured the contract, worth £13,000, following a competitive tender issued by Coventry-based The Landscape Group, part of the id verde Group.

    id verde Group is the European market leader for the management, maintenance and construction of natural and urban landscapes.

    As part of the renovation works, overgrown foliage was cut back to make way for the new planting scheme supplied by us, comprising of approximately 6,000 plants, mainly shrubs and herbaceous and of 44 different varieties.

    The new planting complements the different growing conditions within the site and provides colour and interest throughout the year.

    A sunken garden, which is the focal point at the centre of the park, has also been filled with colourful plants and native flowers in shaded areas to help boost biodiversity.

    The garden first opened in 1949 after being gifted to what was then Fulham Council by the Gunter Estate and was built to remember residents from West Kensington who lost their lives in the Second World War bombings.
