Soil Inversion

Sowings of wildflowers and tree plantings started in 2003. You can now see the spectacular results at Wheeldon Copse, Alvanley, Cheshire – a project in partnership with the Woodland Trust. Benefits for tree growth can be seen at Lunt. Wildlife Surveys can also be made available.

Landlife launched its technical publication Soil Inversion Works with updated research and practical landscape applications for this groundbreaking creative conservation approach. Over 35 sites have now been created nationally, many using soil inversion, and we are keen to share our experience of the benefits of this technique, particularly for introducing native wildflowers into new woodlands.
