A two year project to climate-proof the estates in Hammersmith and Fulham (H&F) by installing green roofs, sunken rain gardens and community planting areas was completed during October following a two-year project.
They were all built in the 1960s and been characterised by expanses of bare concrete.
The project has already been shortlisted for a for a Landscape Institute Award.
The revamp saw Hammersmith and Fulham Council work closely with specialist charity Groundwork London, and has been welcomed be residents.
Emma Griffiths, from Queen Caroline estate, said: “I have had people who don’t live on the estate walking through, saying what a beautiful space it is.
“It is somewhere we want to stop and chat and stop and enjoy the green space, so it’s really made a difference in our lives.”
Cllr Lisa Homan, head of housing at the council said: “H&F is committed to improving and investing in social housing while becoming the greenest borough in the country .
"For an inner London borough, this means returning concrete areas to plants and wildlife.
“This brilliant project has multiple benefits beyond tackling localised flooding, by creating essential green space for people and wildlife.
“We thank all the residents and Groundwork London for their help bringing this to life and hope we can build on its success.”
