Representatives from councils and universities from across the UK come together at the Pictorial Meadows HQ in Sheffield for a day-long masterclass on Urban Meadows.
As more cities, towns, and communities choose urban meadows as landscaping solutions that meet a wide variety of needs, the day offered delegates the chance to network with others planning meadow projects, access the specialist knowledge of the team at Pictorial Meadows, and explore a site full of floral meadows.
“We started running our Meadow Masterclass sessions a few years ago, but this year have seen a huge rise in demand for the event,” says Jonathan Wild, Commercial Director at Pictorial Meadows.
Alongside speakers from the company, the day included a talk from Professor Nigel Dunnet from the University of Sheffield on the future of planting in public places, and the differences between urban meadows and rural conservation meadows.
The research and work completed by Pictorial Meadows has enabled urban meadows to be economically created in areas ranging from small raised flower beds to eightmile central reservations, offering improved biodiversity and pollinator food availability whilst providing dazzling, colourful displays for passers-by.
As urban meadows continue to grow in popularity, both as public landscaping solutions as well as in private spaces, Pictorial Meadows are finding new ways to share their knowledge and help people and organisations to realise the benefits of urban meadows.
