Chauncey Gardens

Nearly a quarter of Greater London is gardens! They form a key part of our city's health and host massive bio-diversity. Gardens reduce the impact of climate change by reducing the urban heat-island effect and reducing flood risk. Our taste for exotic plants provides a rich sources of food for a great diversity of insects and birds. A well managed garden is a carbon sink, locking up atmospheric carbon in the soil. Trees and plants absorb and take pollutants out of the air. But we need to manage and care for our gardens in a sustainable way.

We at Chauncey Gardens do everything we can to reduce our carbon footprint and care for plants using organic gardening techniques. We do use mychorrhizal fungi, plenty of mulch and other organic gardening techniques to create a soil ecosystem that provides plants with all they need to grow healthily. Healthy soil gives heathy plants that fend for themselves, reducing the need for pesticides and fertilizers.
