Flower rich meadows were once widespread throughout the UK, however since the second world war, 97% per cent of them have been lost to development and intensive farming. As a result, there is a growing interest in creating small and large meadow schemes to help reverse this loss as well as enhancing gardens and estates with low maintenance areas filled with wildlife.
Babylon Design creates meadow schemes using different methods depending on the existing soil and vegetation as well as the client’s expectations and budgets.
Options range from enhancing rough grass areas with plugs and suitable seeds or completely repopulating an area of grass or vegetation with a new meadow mix of plants sown onto bare earth. For a truly instant effect without the initial maintenance issues of a new meadow, meadow turf can be supplied and installed.
Whatever option your budget allows, a display of colourful wildflowers and butterflies will increase each year as the scheme develops.
