GARDENS ARE FOR SHARING...
A garden is an opportunity to provide sensory, culinary and living space to ourselves and our buzzing, burrowing and twittering friends.
Our Enviro Policy - In our projects we aim to..
minimise waste, re-use materials and source locally
substitute high carbon materials and reduce cement use
use naturally durable timbers like Larch in lieu of pressure treated
design and plant for biodiversity
create and restore habitats including ponds, meadows, green roofs, living walls
harvest rain water, compost
avoid herbicides and artificial fertilisers
For your specific outdoor space we can select a range of plants that not only look attractive but are also valuable for birds, butterflies, and other wildlife. We suggest alternatives to traditional low diversity lawns, ‘unfriendly’ blooms, and invasive species.
planting for wildlife
We can supply and fit bird and bat boxes that are fit for purpose (some shop bought ones are not). Chris’ own home has a colony of Swifts that moved into the boxes he built following the loss of their nest holes in his roof when he had a loft conversion.
habitats & feeding stations
Ponds and bogs can add so much to a garden if created with care. They are a sensory pleasure for all ages and a marvellous habitat for many species. They collect rainwater and filter grey water and if you have the ambition and space to go BIG, we can even build you a natural swimming pool.
ponds, pools & wetlands
pools & wetlands
Wildflower meadows are something of a passion for us. Even a small patch of meadow is a useful addition that can bring such a lot of pleasure when in flower. We are accredited installers for Wildflower Turf.
