Immense care has been taken to ensure that Canary Wharf is a green and pleasant place to be.
This has involved the planting of:
500 trees (most between 35 and 50 years old) of 20 different species including London Planes, English Oaks, Silver Limes, Red Oaks, Horse Chestnuts and Norway Maples.
40,000 seasonal bedding plants, 4,000 shrubs of 88 different varieties and 83,500 winter, spring and autumn blooming bulbs.
The fountain in Cabot Square is computer controlled and is capable of performing a variety of movements. A sensor detects wind strength and adjusts the water height accordingly to ensure that passers-by are not soaked in windy conditions.
