Fencing & Woodland Planting

Troublesome dog walkers straying from the footpath across the paddock and into the clients garden resulted in the need for boundary fencing.  Thiis led to the idea of the creation of a woodland to one side and an avenue of trees along the other.

A mix of native species were planted and guarded with larger emergent species at particular points through the scheme. 

Project Year: 2013

Project Cost: £10,001 - £25,000

Country: United Kingdom

Area: Mendip Hills

 Our starting point.  A basic paddock ready to be turned into a small woodland.

 With lovely soft ground, an excavator-mounted post auger makes short work of the post holes for the fencing.

 2 years on, and these trees have really put on some height already.  The use of mycorrhizal fungi tablets in the footballs really helps establishment and reduces early losses.  We had almost 100% success here!
