Natural landscaping is describing how we see working in the environment when enhancing a space for amenity use; whilst considering what is best for retaining as much natural habitat at the same time.
For example, when thinning a woodland for biodiversity reasons, you may have a slope that turns to mud in winter and hard to traverse. We can use the wood we felled to either border a path, fill in and level up or create woodland steps. This would be entirely natural hardwood, no treatments. Whilst ground deadwood is an essential component of a woodland ecosystem, why not put it to good use!
Our work can include but not limited to:-
- Improving access to a woodland
- Woodland planting
- Hedge laying
- Creating ponds and lakes, planting margins.
- Creating unique habitat for amphibians and invertebrates
- Wildflower meadow creation
- Building woodland steps
- Building natural stone retaining walls
- Rustic furniture, gates and fencing
Wherever possible we utilise the natural resources within the environment in our work. However, this work is often improving a baron or lost landscape. We always work with native plants and trees where appropriate and have great local suppliers who understand our ethos.
