Rebuilding or rejuvenating Hedges, Repairing or laying Thousands of meters of Property lining rows.
Cleaning ponds & bringing back wildlife.
Reintroducing wild habitat, providing shelter, improving the ecosystem within a garden.
Reprocessing the materials in the garden as we clean through it & clear out what needs removing.
Recycling the natural Organic spoil or bounties of your garden.
Feeding it back, sustaining the growth & natural beauty it contains.
This is a long term passive approach for the most, though comes with high intensity patterns of laborious work; much of which is done operating machines.
It is also a system of bringing back plants or animals long gone from our shores.
So it is for the future; not always the now.
Rutland is a very progressive County, & rewilding it has been something it has actively sought out & succeeded in.
Such as the Ospreys & Red Kites.
Many Land Owners have also taken to doing their bit.
& SOTG has supported these projects over a period of several years.
The results are starting to show in some of our Clients Gardens.
We have sown thousands of seeds, planted hundreds of trees & grown some of the rarer or lost plants & fauna of our great lands.
In doing so we have provided alternative homes & shelters for creatures, a more diverse supply of food & also out of season options that have been missing from our shores for a long time.
So we support rewilding, even if it is only maintaining a neglected section of Hedgerow you share with a neighbour.
