Beech Gardens is one of the newest gardens in the City of London bringing a modern horticultural approach to the planting of the grade II-listed Barbican Estate. Professor Nigel Dunnett, best known for his work at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, was commissioned to develop the concept and a planting scheme.

The reinstated garden had to retain the existing layout and features while offering an exciting opportunity to maximise a range of benefits, such as increasing biodiversity and aesthetic value.The planting scheme includes 22,000 herbaceous plants, which provide colour and interest throughout the flowering season. Fourteen new multi-stemmed trees add structure, height and interest to the garden.
