A CHELMSLEY Wood garden looks blooming marvelous after it was given a makeover.
After spending the past two years isolated indoors due to Covid restrictions, Saxon Court residents wanted to create a Wellness Garden to relax in and encourage the return of friends and family.
The Solihull Community Housing (SCH) residents’ group were thrilled to be handed £6,096 from Severn Trent Water’s Community Fund to help develop the garden.
The water company’s garden service designed the area to enable level access as well as installing raised beds, seating, a water feature and a pergola.
Saxon residents also got hands on by planting and watering the flowers and deciding where to place the furniture.
As the warmer weather continues, Saxon residents are looking forward to spending time in their new garden.
SCH chief executive, Fiona Hughes said: “I was so thrilled to learn about the success of Saxon Court’s application to secure funding for their wellness garden.
“The wellbeing of our residents is so important to SCH and this garden will make a huge difference to the mental and physical health of the residents at Saxon Court.”
