Auchinleck Nursery Wildlife Garden
school grounds project began at Auchinleck Nursery, in Late 2007, between
nursery and East Ayrshire Woodlands.
The main elements to the project were to create a living willow dome, incorporating
a tunnel entrance and some areas of living willow fencing.
major problem encountered was the large amount horse tail / mare's tail
probably imported with bark chippings in the distant past. The horrendous weather
throughout the year limited the opportunities to spray the vegetation and in the
Autumn of 2008 it was decided to completely cover the ground with weed suppressant
sheeting and cover with new bark.
small area of wildflower meadow was initially sown in early Spring 2009 and
official opening took place in early June.
