Urban Meadow Planting

The town’s verges and green spaces are looking really colourful at the moment due to the initiative of the Herne Bay in Bloom team.

This Urban Meadow Planting Scheme was undertaken for the Herne Bay in Bloom campaign by Serco earlier in the year seeding with a mixture of annual and perennial flowers.

Particularly attractive is the sward of colour on the green at the Whitstable Road entrance to Studd Hill.

These urban meadows as well as creating an impressionistic and attractive  effect also provide important green corridors for insects, bees and butterflies. Maintenance of them is minimal and they greatly reduce the costs for mowing which is an additional benefit in these times of economic restrictions.
