Natural hedgerows.

Hedgelaying was once common in the british countryside, with hundreds of thousands of stock-proof boundaries to maintain but over the past century they have been replaced with fences, barbed wire and other man made materials.
However, a well-laid hedge creates a fantastic linear woodland for wildlife and can benefit farmers too. A mature hedge’s root system helps drain soil and offers livestock protection from the elements as well as other ecosystem benefits.
