Green the Grid

Together we can create London's first Front Garden Friendly Neighbourhood

Green the Grid is run for and by Grid residents in Wandsworth SW18, and our aim is to make the Southfields Grid a greener place to live.

Let’s make the SW18 Southfields Grid London’s first Front Garden Friendly Neighbourhood. Together we can transform our front gardens and streets to make Southfields Grid a blooming beautiful place to live.

Too much of Southfields is disappearing under concrete. If we all do our bit to turn a patch of our neighbourhood green, together we can encourage wildlife, improve air quality, help to prevent flooding (by letting water drain into the earth and not down the drain) and enhance our health and wellbeing.

Green the Grid started in the Spring of 2018 and is run for and by Grid residents.  Its aim is to increase the number of planted front gardens and street planting for the benefit of its residents and the environment through organising planting days in the community, providing practical advice and raise awareness of the benefits of a greener environment.
