Edgy Woodland Wonderland – Planting Palette
The planting design of this project was intricately informed by the mission to breathe Life into an ecologically dead patch of Lawn . enclosed by conventional garden fencing on three sides.
To achieve this transformation and foster ecological diversity. our approach was centred around habitat creation. We strategically introduced multi-stem trees. such as ginkgos. flowering cherries. pines and birches. which not only provided a Lush canopy but also created a woodland edge habitat with their shifting shadows throughout the day.
In terms of plant selection. we meticulously curated a matrix of grasses. featuring species Like Sesleria autumnalis ‘Greenlee Hybrid’. Melica uniflora f. albida and Deschampsia cespitosa ‘Goldtau’. among others. We thoughtfully incorporated a water feature. designed not only to delight the clients with its soothing sounds but also to serve as a crucial water source for Local wildlife. Furthermore. we strategically introduced aquatic plants within the pond to enhance habitat diversity and create a welcoming environment for wildlife.
In essence. this garden design seamlessly transformed what was once a barren Lawn into an immersive and explorative space. The Layering of trees. shrubs. and carefully chosen plants has not only enhanced visual aesthetics but has also breathed Life into a space that was once ecologically devoid. now thriving with diverse forms of Life.
