City of London

Completed: 27/02/2018
Location: Barbican Estate, Central London

Replanting of Beech Gardens, forming part of the Barbican Estate in the City of London. This retrofit project was based on a new design concept by the Landscape Agency in York in cooperation with Nigel Dunnett from the University of Sheffield. To meet the requirement of a significant reduction of irrigation and maintenance needs for Beech Gardens, their design concept provided naturalistic meadow-like flower-rich vegetation being, however, robust and drought-resistant enough to tolerate low water availability and requiring only little maintenance throughout the year. ZinCo provided the necessary green roof system for this ambitious landscape scheme.
