As part of Urban&Civic’s wider landscape works at Priors Hall we have delivered and planted 550 trees, including three mature 4.5m silver birch trees, apple trees, alder buckthorn, field maple, hornbeam and shrubby honeysuckle amongst others, to create a forest garden within Priors Hall Primary School.
The 1000m2 flowering meadow had an immediate impact once the seed germinated and meadow established, creating an uplifting floral display that also enhances the bio-diversity of the area.
As the woodland establishes, it will provide a rich source of food and habitat for nature, as well as a new interactive way for the children to learn about ecology and the environment.
We’ve been so excited to watch our grounds turn from an open field into a woodland area for our children and staff to enjoy walking through and to experience watching the trees mature. The wild flower meadow will create a huge difference to the ecosystem and give many opportunities for the children to study wildlife, plants and nature. We thank Urban&Civic for all of their hard work in making this happen for us.”
