Our client, Whiting Landscapes, had created a series of thirty wildlife ponds and scrapes as part of a planning mitigation condition to provide a habitat for Newts.
During the Autumn we were approached to provide our expertise in the planting up and establishment of the ponds to bolster the indigenous, marginal and oxygenating plants already there.
We recommended that any additional planting be left until the following Spring as Autumn is not the time to be installing marginal plants and oxygenators as they naturally die back at that time of year.
The owners of Ballfields Lodge required the creation of a margin along their stream to encourage wildlife and prevent further erosion to the stream bank and were keen to use bio-engineering materials were possible.
Thank you to everyone for a fabulous job, it looks better than we could have imagined, we are chuffed to bits.
Having keen knowledgeable people on the job made such a difference
