A large lawn, entrance area or bordering paddock could be successfully converted into a woodland planting.

Woodland or park-like settings offer a relaxing ambience where you can enjoy shade, wildlife, privacy and micro-climates.

Consider the practicalities of this planting to ensure success. Weed control, mowing / grazing and plant protection all need to be planned for to ensure the planting thrives from establishment through to maturity.

This is a planting that will delight future generations.
