Brightening up the grounds of Powderhall Village

We are fortunate here in Powderhall to have beautiful grounds that are well looked after by our gardeners. However, the Powderhall Village Owners' Association thinks some parts of the grounds would benefit from the introduction of a little more colour. We have set up a Gardening Sub-Committee and met with our gardening contractor to discuss some ideas. In addition, some of us have identified small areas near to our blocks where we’ve planted a few bulbs or small flowering plants and kept an eye on them, watering/staking them when needed. We’re wondering if anyone else in the complex is interested in doing a similar thing for their block. We recognise that some blocks are fine and already have plenty of colour, it’s just certain areas that are lacking.

We bought the plants ourselves but the PVOA has also made a small annual budget available to buy some items if necessary. Any additional planting will need to be co-ordinated by the Gardening Sub-committee and our gardening contractor, and be in keeping with the rest of the grounds.

If you are interested in getting involved please use the Contact Gardening Sub-Committee link in the Contact Us menu to get in touch.
