Teddington gardens revamped
Two Teddington gardens have been given a makeover.
Elmfield Gardens, which sits in front of Elmfield House in Waldegrave Road, and Jubilee Gardens, which is opposite, were both in need of some tlc after they became tired and overgrown.
After a public consultation Richmond Council carried out improvements to Elmfield Gardens that included widening footpaths, reducing internal fencing and creating a paved area.
Lighting, bins and benches were upgraded and box hedging, roses and new beds were planted in the garden, which was designed 30 years ago and included a series of linked gardens enclosed with evergreen and hedges.
Works in Jubilee Gardens included improved access, new furniture and fencing, new planting and the creation of a central seating area for people to sit and enjoy the gardens.
Councillor Pamela Fleming, cabinet member for the environment, said: "Our borough is famous for its beautiful gardens and open spaces, which we all enjoy.
"Both of these gardens are right on our high streets, we walk past them every day, but both were looking a bit tired and definitely in need of some tlc.
"We have now invested in them so they are a more attractive spot for people to enjoy on a daily basis whether they are walking, cycling or driving."
