Online Forest Gardening Course – Full 15 Episodes
Clearings are often needed in forest gardens for light-demanding species or as open ‘human habitat’ spaces. Here we look at how to design clearings for maximum light penetration despite being surrounded by trees. We also look at ponds – in effect an aquatic clearing – why they are important and how to design them. Paths are also essential and their design and maintenance is covered here. We finish by looking at the main maintenance tasks involved in forest gardens.
