A Garden Commute to Work in China

Tuesday, 12 June 2018

We love spending our days in gardens and feel fortunate to be able to do so. We know so many people have to walk/cycle along busy roads to get to work or sit in cars or in busy trains. One of our maintenance clients sent us these amazing photos of his commute to work in Qingdao, China. We would love it if more money was spent in making our outdoors spaces more green – better for the environment and better for our health and well being.

How beautiful is this patterned path through planting?

How beautiful is this patterned path through planting? Much more appealing than a dull tarmac pavement at the side of a busy road.

 

Beautiful planting and pathways make it difficult to believe its in the heart of a city of 5 million people!

A rose bed is carefully tended to keep it looking beautiful. It will certainly help with the pollution and lovely to have nice wide paths away from the roadside.

This is our favourite! How cool is this blue path, like a wave through the garden!

This is our favourite! How cool is this blue path, it’s like a giant ocean wave rushing through the garden! Why do pavements need to be flat and grey?

We would love to see your horticultural commute to work, please share your photos.
