After school club garden
Sandwiched between the after school club building and the main school in Stroud Green, this was an underused and unexciting area, overgrown with weeds.
To keep within a very tight budget, the sawn timber poles that were originally used for the perimeter, were cut and re-used. Compacted, crushed stone was used for the paths and seating areas, and basic slabs were used to extend the existing paved area.
A friendlier, timber fence was used to enclose the area.
Reception play area
A plain, tarmac area was transformed into a fun space, using timber raised beds for children's planting, a 'stage' with a pergola above, planted with a vine, and a willow 'Wigwam'
A recycled rubber safety surface was laid. This also helped to break up the area.
The area was a big hit with the children - especially the wigwam.
