Coming soon...Riverside's Wild Space
As part of the ongoing improvements to the environment around our leafy site we will be re-landscaping our wildlife area over the next couple weeks.
At the far end of the garden centre, on the bank of the New Cut, we will be creating a shady woodland garden to provide a wildlife habitat and attract a greater variety of insect and birdlife to the area that customers will be able to observe from the garden centre.
Having formally housed our beehive, this area will be re-vamped to include a pond, bird boxes, a new beehive, insect homes, log piles, natural planting and a living willow fence that will be sculpted over the years.
The work will be carried out and maintained by staff here using many of the products we sell. In time we hope to add cameras so that visitors can observe up close the comings and goings of the wildlife in the area.
These exciting developments begin next week and are scheduled to continue for a couple of weeks so that the site will be ready for the spring.
