County Durham Biodiversity & Rewilding Project
A private client approached us to help them rewild an area of field in County Durham. We created a 20m by 13m biodiversity pool with a larch deck, beach area and all native planting. In addition, we scraped off large areas of turf and used the material to create banks for planting hedgerows. The scraped areas were seeded with local provenance wildflower. The project has given the client large areas of wildflower meadow intersected with native hedgerows. The pool is a biodiversity hot spot with dragonflies, newts and swallows all using it.
