Wetland Restoration

Over the last 25 years Ecosulis has developed a tried and tested method for establishing reedbeds in a variety of situations. Our experts know that each site has its unique set of challenges and these need to be considered systematically in order to ensure that you can establish a successful reedbed. Where we have been commissioned by clients to repair or restore failed reedbeds, we have identified factors that are often not considered by those installing them. This article outlines some of those key issues and provides solutions to them.

Ecosulis are delighted to have been awarded a contract to cut fenland vegetation on Frilford Heath SSSI in Oxfordshire for Natural England. 

The acid grassland, heathland and associated valley fens at Frilford Heath are unique in southern England.  The site has an exceptionally diverse flora and fauna, with over 400 species of vascular plants recorded, including many national rarities, together with rare beetles, flies, bees and other insects.

Our team have  completed the first phase of a large reed bed creation scheme at the Attenborough Lakes Nature Reserve in Nottingham on behalf of the Environment Agency.  This involved the planting of 44,000 aquatic plants into a man made bed which will form a new reedbed covering 0.6 hectares.
