In summer 2013, Garden Organic, a charity situated in Coventry, became even more environmentally friendly by introducing wildflower areas. Garden Organic now has a variety of Meadowmat wildflower matting in their gardens, courtesy of us at Turf Online who donated our wildflower matting. This has brought even more appealed customers into the award-winning visitor attraction!

Meadowmat has been installed along the road frontage which doesn’t just attract customers, but it also helps support bees, butterflies and other local wildlife. This is also great for Garden Organic because it reduces the amount of maintenance, such as mowing, needed along the narrow strip of grass. This will not only help Garden Organic financially, but it will also help to alleviate concerns about workers’ safety when mowing close to a busy road!

Why Is Garden Organic a Great Attraction?

Within the gardens at Garden Organic, 30,000 visitors are attracted per year which also actively encourages educational visits from schools. Our Meadowmat wildflower matting has been used to create a bee-friendly meadow where interpretation boards have helped visitors learn how crucial species-rich grassed areas are to local ecology and all-important food production!

Angela Lambert from Turf Online said: “This is a fabulous opportunity to remind the British public how beautiful wildflowers are and how valuable they are to our wildlife. Species-rich road verges and meadows are not just about aesthetics. As more and more of our green spaces disappear beneath homes and infrastructure, it’s important that we do whatever we can to maintain biodiversity in the UK – it’s part of our heritage.“
