One of Liverpool’s most fashionable areas has been given a great green makeover thanks to the city’s latest ‘living wall’.
Wander through the heart of the Ropewalks district and you’ll be hit with 132 square metres of fronds, foliage and flora across the front of the Parr Street Car Park.
A total of more than 12,000 plants and flowers adorn the brand new installation, including daffodils, lavender and even wild strawberries for passers-by to pick when they start to fruit.
This Living Green Wall is part of an innovative project to encourage wildlife back into the city centre, help clean the air and give everyone something wonderful to look at.
The project is a partnership between Liverpool City Council, The Mersey Forest and Liverpool University and is funded through the EU Horizon 2020 project Urban GreenUP.
