Its been a busy start to the new year, and efforts so far have been concentrated around improving our woodland walk. We’ve been pulling pesky brambles and throwing loads of clippings through a chipper and as a result have tidied the glade areas and produced enough woodchip to cover a small country. We decided in the end, however, to put our plans for world domination aside and use it to chip the woodland path.
Over the past week we have been installing a set of steps to the end of the woodland walk on an area which was previously a steep muddy bank. The recent rain had definitely highlighted the problem of this section of the trail, as it had become quite slippery and potentially dangerous. We terraced 6 wide steps into the bank using wooden boards and tree stakes to retain the soil. We have now also wood chipped the steps and installed some planting to the side.
The entire garden volunteer team had a hand in this one, and as can been seen from the pictures below, their hard work has most definitely paid off!
Awesome I’m sure you’d agree! Check back later for the final completion photos!
The final product!!!
