Who we are and what we do for wildlife
We are very passionate about wildlife and how to encourage more into your outdoor spaces. Whether you have a tiny urban front garden, a large rural paddock or perhaps a community green space, we're here to help!
Established in 2005, we have been designing and creating all manner of interesting wildlife attracting projects ever since. From wildflower meadows and wildlife ponds to putting up nest boxes and building log piles, we enjoy designing and managing new or existing projects of any size nationwide.
As well as the wildlife side of the business we also undertake landscaping work, focusing on garden design and planting schemes. This often compliments the wildlife garden projects where for example a patio needs laying on the edge of a wildflower lawn, or perhaps an oak pergola and wire system is installed for growing native climbers up as a living screen.
Whatever the job, we always stand by our slogan; "working with nature, for nature".
Joel Ashton is a highly experienced landscape designer, having been designing and implementing a wealth of wildlife gardens, ponds, meadows and hard landscaping projects for Hazelwood Landscapes Ltd for the last decade. Joel uses CAD systems as an essential part of the design process. He is very passionate about gardening for butterflies in particular, using his own back garden which he has transformed into a butterfly haven and subsequently filmed and photographed the 18 species that have visited to nectar and breed. He is a house martin champion, having increased the numbers breeding on his home from a single pair to 8 pairs in 2017. Having two children himself Joel is very keen on encouraging and educating the next generation of wildlife enthusiasts, through teaching, talks and presentations and filming videos.
