Context

The Woodland Garden is the final part of a 15-year project to transform a watermill and to make a new garden from scratch. The client was looking for a serene garden to offer a moment of tranquillity.

Products supplied

73 mature trees supplied by Deepdale Trees Ltd were planted, using the Plati-Mat rootball fixing system from Platipus Anchors.

David Sarton, the Landscape Architect and Contractor, said: “This was the best option for the trees as 150 or so visible stakes would have spoilt the overall look of the garden.”

The Platipus Piddler® irrigation and aeration system was also used to deliver water and air evenly and laterally around the rootball.
