Oak Planters on the Green

Following on from the very successful tree and hedge planting on the south side in early 2022, the Group wanted to focus on the lack of trees or plants on the north side of the Green. Unfortunately, due to underground service pipes, planting directly into the ground in this area was not an option.

An alternative plan was developed to place three large planters, that would not only introduce plants & grasses to that area, but would also provide a flat area that is a safer access route for the users of the playground and green.

With the kind permission of EDDC and the financial support from the East East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with matched funding from the Friends of Higher Brook Meadow Group. The planters were built, delivered and installed by Wild-Hart a local business. At the end of October/ early November 2022, members of the Friends of Higher Brook Meadow spent a few days preparing and clearing the ground, installing the planters and then planting them.

Some of plants were purchased, at a kind discount, from Kings Garden Centre in the village whilst the rest were kindly donated by neighbours of the green.
