On Wednesday, Jan. 25, 2023, the horticultural works for a new sustainable lawn have started in front of the Main Library.

With this, the ULB is taking the next step towards sustainability and environmental protection. Together with experts, a new planting concept was developed so that the new lawn will be insect-friendly and will only need to be mowed twice a year. 

How does the new lawn come into place?

First, a construction fence is installed on the side of the paths so that the green area cannot be entered for the time being. 

Then the entire area will be cleared away, mulched out and then sown with a new insect-friendly seed mixture.

Hopefully, many insects will find their way to our new ULB meadow in the spring.
