Tree Pit makeover (Pimp our pavements)
You may have noticed the sad condition of many of the tree pits in the BEST area. Many are in a dangerous condition, see picture below.
BEST is promoting the improvement of the “tree pits”.
We want to assist concerned residents to give their “local” tree pit a transformational make over.
The picture below shows what can be achieved.
Martin Harvey, a local gardener, will be on hand at the “Big Lunch” event on the 25th of May to demonstrate the ways you can turn your tree pit into a mini urban garden.
He can advise you how to prevent the pavement slabs collapsing, how to build a boarder and what to plant.
BEST intends to bulk purchase soil and wooden edging to kick start the greening or our streets*.
