Recently something rather interesting has sprouted up in one of London’s parks. They have planted the very first lawn that is lacking in the usual plant that makes up a lawn which is grass. This lawn has all sorts of fragrant herbs and wild flowers in it to create a wonderful sensory interactive experience when walking on the lawn.

This lawn was created by researcher “Lionel Smith” from the University of Reading who is working on the subject of grass free lawns. Maybe he took a little inspiration from the well known novel “The Camomile Lawn”. The Camomile Lawn is a book written in 1984 and set during World War II. During the story the Characters go to stay at their aunts house where there is a long camomile lawn stretching from the house to the edge of the cornish cliffs.

If you want to pay a visit to this Grass Free Lawn then it is open to the public and can be found at “Avondale Park, Notting Hill, Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea, London, W11 4PQ”.

This lawn got us thinking that these days more and more people are thinking about how they make an impact on the world, and products are flooding the market to satisfy peoples need to be ecological. We have found a great little product on the market which is perfect for weddings or parties. Its confetti goes the extra mile and gives the earth that extra little bit of love. Instead of simply naturally degrading, the confetti is actually loads of seeds for wild flowers so a few weeks after the event you will have beautiful wild flowers blooming on the lawn.

If you want to get hold of some of your own Throw & Grow Confetti, they are made by a company in the Netherlands and can be ordered here.
