Just had an offer accepted on a wooded valley with a stream running though it. Oh, and it has a house in there too, but I'm more interested in the woodland!
The wood covers about half an acre so isn't really big enough for a bike trail, but I'm really looking forward to getting stuck in to a bit of path building and "managing" to make a good place for my ever-expanding tribe of nephews and nieces to play in.
It's a steep terraced escarpment with a level glade at the bottom, so will really lend itself to a bit of subtle landscaping whilst leaving mother nature to take care of the majority of the work.
Can anyone recommend any good websites, books or other resources about gardening and managing this type of terrain? Any advice from people with similar land or experiences would be fantastic...
