Quadrat Scotland can produce detailed plans for the management of natural areas taking into account recent research and trials on habitat restoration, conservation and enhancement. Linking with landscape professionals, we can also produce design plans for projects involving areas of natural habitat, or community/amenity projects that intend to use native species and be managed to promote biodiversity.
Management and design projects that we have worked on include:
- The creation of a community/wildlife resource at RiccardJohnson Woodland by Motherwell, using existing areas of woodland and the relics of past field boundaries to inform a new design for an amenity area for local schools and the community.
- Common grazing management at Pendle Hill, Forest of Bowland, Lancashire.
- Community park in Strachur including the conservation of wet woodland as a biodiversity area, the creation of a pond and paths, and an area of amenity grassland.
- Lochgoil Arboretum (see natural playgrounds).
- Conservation management plan for Roeburndale Woods in the Forest of Bowland, Lancashire.
