The Lansdowne Youth Centre is a small community project providing a relaxed atmosphere for young people in the Clapham and Stockwell area of Lambeth, where they can learn and develop through film and documentary evenings, discussion groups and other social activities.
The centre has recently been refurbished but the outside still needed a bit of TLC. Connick Tree Care was happy to lend a hand.
When tidied up, the area at the front would provide an ideal space for sitting and taking advantage of the open air.
The area needed to be as low maintenance as possible both in terms of upkeep and cost.
Around the bin area we erected trellis and planted jasmine, which will quickly grow up to provide an attractive, scented screening.
We were able to rescue two trees returning them to a healthy size and shape. The rest of the beds were cleared of overgrown plants and weeds and prepared and laid with turf. The spiky cordyline shrub along the boundary has added an interesting final touch.
The young people who visit the centre now have a pleasant outdoor area to sit, chat and enjoy.
