Project 6 - Large scale plantation
Project 5
The pool had been recessed into the side of a gentle slope giving a bank area which needed some interest as the surrounding land was predominantly lawn.

We have undertaken the design and plantation of more than 1000 plants in 'prairie planting' style. This means large blocks of the same plants set out in drifts across the area and giving a natural or 'wild' look. The plants were selected for their relative ease of maintenance and low irrigation requirements once they are established. Plants we have used include Echinacea, Rudbeckia, Red Valerian, Hemp Agromony, Persicaria, Sanguisorba 'red thunder', Perovskia, Achillea, Aster, Penstemon, Jerusalem Sage and a range of grasses such as Miscanthus, Deschampsia, Carex, Pennisetum, and Blue Fescue.

To reduce costs small plug plants were used but these will fill out over subsequent years and consequently the landscape cloth will be cut back year on year until it is eventually not needed.

As this is a new plantation there will be more photos as this project develops.
