Gardencheck is a simple way of rating front gardens

IMG_0075Gardencheck is a simple method by which we can assess our streets and begin to change attitudes among householders, policymakers and everyone else with a stake in places where people live.

Front gardens help to make towns and cities worth living in. They can make walking a pleasure, promote sociability, contribute to biodiversity, reduce the danger of flooding and make streets safer. But too many are neglected, contributing nothing to the quality of the place. Every year thousands of front gardens are paved over.

Find the updated Gardencheck details HERE and use this tool to assess your own front garden and others as well as looking at whole streets.
