We are fortunate that the Nether Edge development has extensive and varied grounds which can be enjoyed by all residents.
The magnificent lime and plane trees on the Union road side are a legacy from the days of the old Nether Edge Hospital and the Workhouse. Gleesons (the developer) laid out formal gardens in the centre of the development. Lawns, trees, shrubs and a recently restored water feature enhance other areas. All the trees on the development are subject to tree preservation orders.
Our gardening contractor, in conjunction with the Nether Edge Management Company, works to maintain and improve the grounds. He is ably assisted by a group of residents, who give up some of their Saturday mornings ( during the warmer months) to help with weeding, pruning, planting etc.( see What’s On for dates.) We are always grateful for the offer of shrubs, cuttings, etc., from those who have private gardens.
