Forming the land to create structures out of natural materials such as wood, rocks and twigs adds a beautiful aesthetic to your woodland. The combination of colour, texture, pattern and form are combined to create your perfect landscape. In addition to responding to the visual qualities of landscapes, people also perceive landscapes through the sense of hearing, smell, touch, taste and the three dimensionality of the space.
Bunds are a wonderful way to change the landscape of your woodland. As well as being artistic, bunds are unique to your site. They are especially rewarding on flat sites. Changing the landscape to create hills, hillocks, valleys and ridges for a more diverse environment is one way to make your woodland design more personal to you. Bunds also reduce water pollution, address flood risk and help control soil erosion. Similarly, bunds control water levels which aids habitat creation and restoration.
