About This Project

‘This medal-winning urban garden provides a green and peaceful refuge for people and wildlife, in particular the endangered water vole. It draws inspiration from, and celebrates, the centenary of the classic children’s book the ”Wind in the Willows” and its much-loved character Ratty, the water vole.

Featuring a pond and native wetland plants, such as Phalaris arundinacea and Iris pseudacorus, the garden incorporates the elements required to attract water voles, showing gardeners who live near waterways how they can help to save this newly protected species.
