Habitat & woodlands

Introducing an understanding about the natural environment as early as possible is of great importance. Creating woodland & habitat areas in your outdoors provides them with an experience full of learning as the changing seasons introduce new & exciting discoveries. Even with the smallest of spaces it is possible to incorporate a woodland & nature habitat into your outdoors. By introducing specific plants we can turn part of your outdoors into a nature haven for butterflies, bugs, insects and even frogs. We can also create wormeries and other contained habitats to allow learning about specific creatures & how they live. All the mini-beasts will fascinate your children and help them to learn the importance of all creatures great & small!
