Landscaping – Indigenous Trees and Green car park at Baobab college, Lusaka, Zambia

In September 2012, we were asked to convert the old playing fields into a “green” car park at Baobab college. There was a huge mound of earth which we used to demarcate the car park lines and which we moved by a few men with wheelbarrows.  We planted 230 indigenous trees,  lots of shrubs and some ground cover, and planted grass.

We visited Baobab college last week to deliver some Baobab trees and we were delighted to see the Green car park looking like the shady woodland that was dreamt of. Indigenous trees grow fast and well if they are looked after.
