Golf Course Ecology and Environmental Projects

Rich in flora and fauna, golf courses are important ecological sites, providing diverse habitats for wildlife including many rare and protected species. We work with golf clubs and their agronomists to enhance biodiversity at courses of all types and supply a range of wildflower turf and heather turf for heathland regeneration.
