Living Fences: Fagus sylvatica / European Beech

We are all about creating living fences, not walls. Better for humanity, wildlife and an enormous positive aesthetic to add to any landscape.

STEP 1: We have planted 225 European Beech whips in our staging area of leaf mold + compost + soil conditioner. Happily we can report green leaves are starting to sprout. YEAH!

Next step will be to dig trench for their final home, stay tuned.

Woowee, great growth on out beech whips!

STEP 2: Fagus sylvatica in situo. Layout will include a gate area flanked on either side with specimen Japanese maples. Bed has been treated with an application of milky spores to combat grubs and the addition of worm castings to boost soil nutrients.
