Junction near North Circular Road to feature planters containing shrubs, edible plants and herbs
Plants have been installed on a busy road popular with Turkish-speaking people as part of an effort to improve the look and feel of the area.
Green Lanes in Enfield, close to the junction with the North Circular road, will now feature an installation of six planters as part of a project to make the area more attractive for everyone.
Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment Daniel Anderson was at the site this week to see the steel planters, cast in a ‘pearl copper’ colour, will create a permanent floral feature down this busy road.
A statement from the council said he met with staff from Glendale, the contractors who were busy finishing planting.
The scheme, funded by the council, will make the area in Bowes Ward, close to the North Circular Road, more visually attractive.
They will contain several low maintenance plants including shrubs and a number of edible plants and herbs which can be picked by residents.
Mr Anderson said: “Enfield is rightly proud of its beautiful greenery, and these planters, which will contain such plants as thyme, sage and oregano will enhance the look and feel of the area making it an even more vibrant and attractive place to live, work and visit.”
