Did you know wildflower meadows remove a range of pollutants from the air?

Compared to the shallow roots of a typical lawn, the variety of their roots bring essential nutrients to the top of the soil. Many insects also prefer to dine on what grows wild, which can be beneficial to adjacent gardens and crops. With an amazing capacity for carbon storage, no need for weed killers and less frequent mowing, wildflower meadows are a great way to enrich your life.

Environment and Ecology as guiding principles

As the world becomes increasingly aware of the importance of looking after the environment, there are many small steps we can all take to share in that responsibility. This may consist of small measures such as replacing a lawn with a wildflower meadow and planting native hedging along a fence, creating wildlife habitats, one small sanctuary at a time. It means planning a project to minimise waste and using locally sourced materials where possible. At Green Oak, we take a holistic view of all our projects and are happy to advise you on how you can positively impact when commissioning your project.
