The Edinburgh Living Landscape (ELL) is a partnership project that creates, restores and connects green areas of the city to help reduce the impact of climate change and make attractive and biodiverse landscapes. As part of this project the Council has created a significant number of biodiversity-rich landscape features, i.e. sowing floral meadows, reducing how often some areas of grass are cut to encourage naturalisation and pollination, mowing pathways through areas of longer grass so they can still be explored and enjoyed, planting trees and creating woodlands, increasing use of herbaceous perennial planting, and planting bulbs.

We would welcome your suggestions of locations for additional landscape features.
